July Photo of the Month: Fungi Family

Summer is heating up and we’ve got a new photo contest winner for you.

The victor for July took the cake by the narrowest of margins – Kenneth Mayfield’s photograph of mushrooms in the forest won by just one vote. He used our Trigmasters to illuminate the fungi, and the result speaks for itself.

Former winner Alberto Rojas almost won again with his stunning long exposure/moon image.

From Kenneth’s own words:

“Having a go at flash fungi portraits. Almost a win, except for the focus and foreground grass spoilers – next time, victory is assured! (editors note – this time was good enough!)

Canon 550D, EF 17-40 L, SB27 and 430 EXII flashes and Aputure Trigmaster triggers. Also, a mountain bike LED light to pick on the little whitecap mushroom.

SB27 is diffused at camera left, 430 EX II at camera right for highlights action.”
