a study in mushrooms

i have no photography skills/education/background. zero. zip. i wanted to take a picture of my shiitake mushrooms I purchased. according to a book I am reading they are very healthy for you. they contain lentinian which stimulates the immune system. rates of stomach cancer in japanese people who consume 'large amounts' of certain mushrooms (of which shiitake is included) are 50% less. mushrooms are also being used in conjunction with chemotherapy. back to photography though, I am learning very slowly. i have to remind myself to play with light and move things around and change locations. it's fun. all in all I now have 19 pictures of shiitake mushrooms. they have the names shroom, shrooom and shroooom.
