Week 1 Photography 101 - Aperture

This is the first week to the 2Peas 12 weeks to better photos course. I did this a bout 18 months ago but have decided to revisit it along with some others on the forum.

Week one is about selecting the appropriate aperture values for the situation. the lower the f number the wider open the aperture is and thus more light gets into your camera thus making the camera work faster to capture your photos. The result of a open aperture is that you create the blurry backgrounds that is sometimes referred to as Bokeh and depth of field (DOF). The assignment this week is to focus on a single point and step up the aperture values (f-stops) and have a look at the different results.
