photo suggestion

I suggest a reflector to the left of the mushroom and toward the camera. For the benefit of others: Take two pieces of shirt cardboard. Cover oneside of each of them with slightly crumpled and reflattened aluminum foil. In each case, fold the excess foil onto the reverse side of the cardboard and secure the foil’s folds to the cardboard with masking tape. Don’t be stingy. Lay the two wrapped cardboard pieces on a flat surface and press to of the long edges firmly together. Securely tape the seam. You now have a book with two very shiny pages. It will stand up by itself on many relatively flat surfaces.

When taking a photograph in natural light, arrange the “book” to maximize the light on the part of the object being photographed that has the least light in the natural lighting situation.

In an unnaturally lit (e.g., flash) situation, the reflector will also help. In the present case, we’d have a better idea about how white the cap was.

Good luck.

Very best,


this one also seems to have a bit of yellow color in the cap…
