This satellite online mini art gallery shows in a new presentation of slideshows and photogrids a new selection of C Ribet wild mushroom photographs which in the past had been poorly presented because when they were first created there were no effective web tools to create proper slideshows of the wild mushroom photographs. Everything for the internet back in those days had to be done manually and was very labor intensive (kind of like wild mushroom hunting). Therefore, the old website for what seems like ages has had up as the virtual wall decorations mushroom photographs set up as a series of slideshow like pages about the mushroom art of C Ribet replete with some ramblings about the process of collecting and photographing these wild mushrooms. These were pages linked one after another to create a slide show effect, but were very limited in appearance and hard to manage. Those old pages of mushroom pictures predated things like Flash and javascript so they were really just mushroom artwork pages strung together and not really a slide show at all by modern standards. So, along comes the modern age, and we get a chance to make things that appear a bit cleaner and nicer on the page.

The old pages are still there as a memorial to the past, so if you would like to get a gander at these old wild mushroom photo art pages start with the old fungi art mushroom photo slideshow first page. The mushroom pictures on those older pages tell a bit of the story of wild mushroom hunting, although most aren't any of the mushroom art prints for sale by the artist through the links to the C Ribet Zenfolio online gallery. Navigate through the old slideshow by the back/next buttons or using the mushroom photo images themselves by clicking on the left or right side of the mushrrom photographs.

Once the original wild mushroom pictures are taken, back in the 'digital photography darkroom' of the computer the images of the mushroom picture then serve as both inspiration and source for the creation of the digital 'master' photographs from which the final wild mushroom art prints ultimately will be created. The original digital mushroom pictures are in effect the raw material from which the mushroom picture digital masters are created for the mushroom prints. Sometimes for the mushroom print the only changes to the original wild mushroom pictures may be as simple as cropping the photograph and removing a blurry shadow cast by a mote of dust on the lens. …

Not only can an all-digital work environment allow for creative choices otherwise unattainable in the image creation process, but today's digital print methods offer more even after the 'digital master' is created. Technological advances in the digital printing process now readily make possible printing on nontraditional media such as canvas and fine art watercolor papers. For the fungi and wild mushoom art giclees which I create, I prefer the look and texture of heavy weight watercolor fine art 'board' papers. …

Each wild mushroom art print mushroom photo starts as a high resolution digital mushroom photograph (the original mushrooms picture which will result in the final fine art watercolor print). That is why these gallery mushroom prints and images may be referred to at times as 'mushroom photographs', 'mushroom pictures', or 'mushroom photos', etc. However, while the origin of each print lies in a mushroom photograph (the fungi or mushroom picture which was first captured by the camera), the final watercolor print is not at all a mushroom photograph in the traditional sense of photography.
