Sorry, Alanna

I tend to forget whose posts I comment on, since I work through a dozen to several hundred observations per day. When and where I find inadequate photography, I post that link by default.

Rocky is right, most of this is just practice. I have plenty of pictures from back when I started that are not sufficient for obtaining an ID. I learned by doing, as you will, no doubt.

The benefit of digital photography is being able to see your image as you’re composing it and the finished product right after you’ve captured your image. During and after taking your shot, check to make sure the features you are attempting to capture are, in fact, crisp and clear. Smart phone cameras are more than capable, though they do struggle a little in low light.

That’s ok

Alanna, everybody starts somewhere. If you ever decide to improve your photography, you’ll figure it out in no time; there’s a whole wide internet full of advice out there. I’m certain that you figured out the importance of focused pictures the first time Danny posted that link on one of your observations.
What I can’t figure out, is why Danny felt the need to post this link, with no other text, in four of your observations?
Anyway, keep observing mushrooms Alanna, keep getting better, try to keep having fun.
