iPhone Fungi

Whilst I’m a guy who enjoys fun, I’m not normally a fungi guy! However I noticed these toadstools/mushrooms, or whatever they are, in the garden and decided to try out a few snaps with the iPhone 12 Pro, using the Portrait mode.


Using a smartphone for such a low angled shot pointing upwards, was a bit challenging. The power button, being on the side that was resting on the ground, kept getting knocked and so kept turning the phone off😖. Also, with no flip out screen it was very difficult to compose.


The portrait mode on the iPhone 12 simulates a shallow depth of field, but it can leave some irregularities that are visible when examined closely; though overall it’s not done too bad a job.
