    Nope all pics are taken with the only lens I have, a crappy $150 18-55 kit lense.

    Did you use a tripod? Just wondering because I take a lot of closeup mushroom pics but I always have used a macroflash or brighter sun light, and my colors usually don't come out so well. Also, that is pretty good depth of field and good lighting on the background! I don't know about with your lense but I could never push the Fstop far enough in that light without a tripod to get that depth. I'm still trying to figure out how the best ones (where the whole background is in focus but the mushroom is real close) are done.

    Oh, and if you want to know what they are, I'd be happy to share. The first one has a pretty interesting story behind it.

    Nope, no tripod, just an extremely steady hand. I also did a bit of post processing in photoshop (levels, contrast, saturation, sharpen, etc.).

    Here are some before and after pics to give you an idea. I have beeing paying a lot of attention to light lately.

    I think the dof is great in this shot because I was able to get an angle where there was nothing near my subject.
