To photograph this oyster mushroom (Pleurotis ostreatus) shedding spores, two exposures using different types of lighting were made , and then combined digitally into a final image. The mushroom itself was lit with diffuse light from the front. With this lighting, the spores could not be seen. The spores were photographed using darkfield lighting. With this lighting, the mushroom did not show any detail. The two resulting images were combined using Photoshop.
