Controlling Depth of Field-
Aperture – the amount of light that passes through the lens
The aperture is the opening inside the lens. It controls the depth of field, giving you a blurry or sharp background behind your subject.

Come out to our Flowers workshop, you will begin to understand the use of aperture, why to use aperture and how to change the setting on YOUR camera!
If you want to take a picture of a subject and have the background be blurry, you’d use shallow depth of field. If you want to take a picture of a landscape, you’d want to use a deep depth of field.
