Owning a DSLR camera makes me want to go all out in taking photos wherever I go. In my previous post, I talked about how I forced myself to study up the gazillion technical features of a camera. Boy, how I wish I could just point and shoot with no fret, and have those images turn out perfectly picturesque. I am not going to deny the fact that I’m still a noob, and a noob needs all the time in the world to understand what’s going on in the realm of photography.
On the other hand, I am beginning to understand how APERTURE makes a difference in an image. Aperture priority is one of the semi-manual modes. It is an ingredient of exposure that determines how much of your photo is in focus. This mode determines the size of the opening in your lens through which light passes before entering the camera and being recorded by the sensor. The size of this opening is controlled by aperture blades, and a wide aperture is associated with shallow depth of field while a narrow aperture results in deep depth of field.
Here are the pictures that I have taken with Aperture priority/ Portrait mode with an ISO of 100-200.
These pictures below were taken with Aperture of f4.2, ISO 100, Portrait or Toddler mode:-
What do you think? If you are a pro, please share some tips on how to enhance these images. I still think they are not up to standard.
Ganbateh, Grace! Practice makes perfect!
