Glow in the dark Fungi

30 May 2017 -- Posted by : Pamela

One of our unexpected finds while on our first Photography Workshop on Christmas Island was the bioluminescent fungi in the rainforest. These beautiful fungi are white in daylight and only about 5 cm high. They are extremely weather dependant, if they dont get enough moisture after a couple of days they dry out and glow no more! We discovered this on our workshop when we returned a second time to try and get some more shots and they had all dried up.

To get a nice shot of these little beauties you need a sturdy tripod and lots of patience and settings around 30sec F5.6 ISO 3200.

Come with us in 2018 and see if we can find some of these little beauties.
