{Tackling Depth of Field-Day 7}

Continuing on with Day 7:




Today I played around with my camera in Aperture Priority Mode (AV). Moving the aperture one stop smaller with each shot made the point of focus a little different. The first few pictures, with the aperture at its widest made the background not as noticeable, they eye was drawn to the subject. The smaller the aperture, the more was in focus.

So, if you want a blurry background, you would choose a large aperture, like f/1.6 or f/3
but if you want everything in focus, you would choose a small aperture, like f/20.
