camera challenge{d}: colors

last week i took some photos with "color" in mind.
this particular beach day was rather gray,
and i was so happy to find so much color to cheer me up.

once again, i used only the manual mode of my camera, playing around with the different settings.

this week i want to learn a bit more about these different settings,
and i think i'm better off doing that one at a time.

so, for this week i'm going to figure out the when and why of aperture.
i have referenced my brothers brain for some definitions and explanations here.

the basics of aperture (as i understand them):
* f/number measures the aperture
* the smaller the number, the bigger the aperture, the more light comes in

i will welcome any insight, knowledge, tricks of the trade, etc......


  1. Em, your photos are wonderful!

  2. +1 to what Mimi said. Totally Em.

    Small f/number = more light = shallow depth of field
    Big f/number = less light = deep depth of field (more in focus)


I love getting comments! I will now be responding to your comments right here in the comment section. Thank you for taking the time to tell me how you feel!
