I love taking pictures and always have!
Up until now, I have been a point and shoot kind of gal. With encouragement from my big sister, I took a huge leap and bought a big girl camera...
A Nikon d7200 to be exact ;-)
I have taken some time on these quiet winter days to learn more about photography... Better yet, I learned how much I need to learn about photography!
The snow slowly drifts and flitters around outside but I am perfectly cozy and content inside learning about this whole new world of imagery.
This Lesson was all about learning and understanding the basics of fstops.
with a smaller aperture, the f-stop number is larger and my depth of field is wider allowing my little fruit in the background to be in focus, showing off those cute little dimples.
with a larger aperture, the f-stop number is smaller which makes my depth of field smaller, in turn, making my little fruit in the background softer and out of focus.
It took me a bit to grasp the concept that larger equals smaller and the vice versa smaller equals larger, but I finally got the hang of it!
Have you taken on any new projects this winter?
