I didn’t want to use this example for my hard and soft lighting because I was waiting for my ND filter and I did notice the whiteout on the mushrooms. I did like the look of the mushrooms when I used side lighting of the sun and positioned myself on the ground so that the mushrooms on the tree followed a diagonal line but the mushrooms on the tree were out of focus and there were camping items in the frame. I felt that the sunset picture was much more dramatic however I do feel like I understand lighting much better now. I switched my ISO several times, used a tripod and also tried artificial flash fill but I enjoy using the manual controls on my camera so much that I only wanted to send what I felt was the best. I hope this represents the assignment a little better. I appreciate your time very much!
