Most have a flash.   Often I will hold the flash in my hand and do a 3 - 4 second exposure and flash it a few times from different angles while the shutter is open.   The idea is that about 80 percent of the light should be natural light and around 20 percent from the flash.

yes it can be very tricky to get the light just right to show off the definition and the color...very well done its not easy work to get all these mushroom photos especially when you have a mosquito biting your hand or something lol you are always an inspiration

 

Has anyone posted the video of you and Adam I believe from learn your land? It was a great video but I wanted to talk to you or him before posting it?

Where are you at in Ecuador? I stayed in Banos and Montanita for a couple of weeks. Banos is rad! I'm jealous of your trip already.
