Niall Benvie - Spore prints


There is no shortage of photographs of fungi but what is a lot less common, and interesting in its own way, are spore prints, such as these ones.

In each case, a fruiting body was laid on a piece of textured paper overnight, causing the falling spores to create a pattern by morning. Post production optimised the clarity of these patterns.

It’s a nice project to pursue when the weather is against you…
