I’ve never changed settings when using this light. The color seems to be true.

Thanks Joan

Just one more related question; does this create an issue having to change the white balance between shots? White balance is such an issue on so many pictures here – but your looks spot on to me. Again – thanks!

I have an old Yongnuo Digital SYD-0808 LED light that attaches to my camera or which I can hand hold. In the first two in situ shots, I placed it on the ground so that it threw light on the mushroom. For other shots, I hand-held it to get the lighting I wanted.

That is a cool mushroom and a great picture! I know how hard it can be to get good pictures of white mushrooms in dark areas – without blowing out the white. What is your secret here? A fill flash?
