Now for the subject of today's post: My sweet daughter bought me a Nikon D3100 SLR camera for Christmas! Lucky me. I am working on my
This is week two and we learned about aperture and how it affects depth of field and shutter speed. Our assignment was to take a sequence of pictures that show the effects of increasing the aperture (increasing the f-stop/decreases the light) WOW...I think I understand my assignment and the results! It's my pleasure to post my assignment. Thank you Aimee and Stud.
This collage shows the f/3.5 and the f/14 side by side. Notice that more of the pic is focused with the aperture decreased (f stop increased).
Edit: I think it will be easier for me to refer to aperture as wide and narrow with wide referring to lower f# (more light) and narrow referring to higher f# (less light), so I do not confuse increasing/decreasing/higher/lower aperture and increasing/decreasing f#.
Edit #2: Upon further study, Increasing aperture=lowering F# (allowing more light), Decreasing Aperture=raising F# (allowing less light).
