This is a scene of some Mushrooms i made a while ago. I learned much about lightning and compositing, especially the use of the glow node in the compositor.

I hope you like it and appreciate your feedback



Wow! Would you mind sharing some details about your process?

I really love these.
As a photographer I have made quite a few images like this.
Never thought it could be done accurately in Blender.
Would you mind sharing details of how you took this on ?

This is so perfect.

Finally i used the filmic Color management and the exposure and gamma Parameters to change the look a Little bit:

Very beautiful and fresh, nice on the eye

This render is really beautiful. It’s just so pure of an image. This sort of thing is what got me into blender, the ability of people to make these renders that just feel sort of magical :). Great work!

looks great ! toxice or not?
