Last weekend, I worked a bit more on my aperture skills. I played around with the different settings of my camera to change the background from blurry to clearer and it worked quite well. As the weather was sunny but really icy, the atmosphere was very special. I am glad that I woke up early enough to be able to go out for the pictures before my cheerleading practice. And now, I proudly present the results:
The next one is definitely my most favorite as the colors are so beautiful and the foreground is so perfectly clear! It demonstrates pretty well how icy it was outside:
The following two pictures show the effect of different aperture settings perfectly:
In the first one, I used an aperture of f/5 and in the second one I set the camera to f/20. Can you see the difference in the background? I prefer the first picture as it has a much blurrier background which highlights the foreground much more. In the second picture, the branches do not really stick out that much which makes it look uneasy. I am usually trying to find one thing in the picture to stand out and in this case that worked much better in the first picture with the low aperture.
What do you think about my progress? Which picture do you like best?
