{ Aperture - T365 #37 }

I will be the first to admit that there is so much about my camera (Canon Rebel T1i) that I don't understand, it's just so intimidating. I've decided to participate in an online photo course called "12 Weeks to Better Photography" by Two Peas in a Bucket, thanks to a few friends that also were up for the challenge and have helped motivate me. I completed the first weeks assignment today which was all about exploring aperture by taking three photos of the same subject with various apertures, showing the different depth of fields as the aperture changed. As you can see in the photos the lower the number the less in focus the photo will be and as the number gets higher more of the background will come into focus. I'm really hoping my friends who are also doing this challenge are proud of me when they see these photos as they all took great photos early in the week and I waited until Sunday evening, not to mention the few overachievers that already did the second week (yeah, I'm talking to you, you know who you are).
