Photography Tip: Experiment with Aperture Settings

This won't be a lengthy Photography Tip explaining the whole field of aperture control, just two quick photos and the camera specs used to shoot them.  Taking your camera out of the fully Auto Mode and setting it to "A" (Aperture Priority) is all you need to do for this experiment.

The above photo was taken at an aperture setting of f/11.  The camera was mounted on a tripod and I focused on the grain.


The second photo was taken at an aperture setting of f/5.6 without changing the focus or readjusting the position of the tripod.

Taking control of aperture settings allows you to sharpen, or blur the background in your photo.

Try experimenting with some different aperture settings than what your camera likes to use.

Before long, you'll be wondering why they put that crazy Auto Mode thing on there !
