Mushroom Art for Sale by Artist C Ribet

The mycological micro-environment surrounding the wild mushroom or wild mushrooms in a mushroom photograph is often what separates run-of-the-mill mushroom photographs from mushroom photographs which are destined to go through the transformation process to ultimately yield wild mushroom art prints. Fungi themselves are very diverse, and so are the environments in which they thrive. At times the best wild mushroom photograph for fungi photograph, and the one on a day's outing which may yield a final wild mushroom art print, is the mushroom photograph with the 'least' mushroom and the 'most' evocative surroundings (for example, Mute Ovation shown at Gallery California). Under other circumstances, the best mushroom photograph is the one with the 'most' mushroom and the 'least' surroundings (for example, Delight at Gallery California). Even the most physically similar wild mushrooms will virtually always be strikingly different, given different surroundings.
