Learn by Doing – Trying out different Aperture Settings

This week we are pushing forward with aperture settings.  Understanding aperture settings  was extremely confusing to me at first. It seemed backwards when I would hear someone say f/16 is a smaller aperture opening than f/1.8, but apparently it’s true… This week’s assignment was to set up your camera on a tripod and just change the aperture on the same picture to see what would happen.  I took five pictures ranging from f/5.6 – f/22 – ISO 100 – 55mm focal length.

Next Post will be – Why when you change the aperture does the picture go blurry? First I have to research because I have no idea! I understand that if I use a wider aperture opening like f/2.8 I will have a shallow depth of field but why?
