Today I rode my mountain bike 8 miles deep into the forest to see if there were any mushrooms or fungi making it worthwhile to hike in lugging all my camera gear. I spotted this one mushroom a few miles in just off the trail. I stopped and took a couple pictures with my point and click. Back home I uploaded the pictures into the computer and asked myself, "Why do I bother with my big DSLR, expensive macro lens, heavy tripod, fiddling with settings and lighting when my little Canon point and click takes pictures like this...hand held?"
All are straight out of the camera, set on Auto, with no photoshop tweaking.
Really, photography is maddening.
