M/W Class: Good job last night. Aperture is a tough concept, but ill be beneficial as you become more creative. How do you think you will use this new technique?

Went out with a friend to shot some pic's with her D3000 Nikon. Didn't take pic's after all. We couldn't figure out how to work her camera with the aperture changes. It became a very frustrating day for her and me. I guess if your going to have a nice camera you need to learn how to use it.

Glad you tried. We can work on it on Monday if you are still having problems. Please bring in manual with you.

While changing aperature settings I was able to change the subject of my photo by bringing it into focus or out of focus. I was also able to show the different depths of field by lining 3 bottle up and bringing each one into focus or just one of them.

I did my photos with the different aperture settings and with the film it was very hard to notice any real differences at first. I tried multiple aperture settings throughout the assignment so that when I got my results back I would have multiple views to look at it and begin to see how it all works. I know especially with film cameras it is going to be more a aquired knowledge in the end which I think will be better becasue when the moment comes to get a picture fast I will have the knowledge and wont have to try different ones. Even though I must say it is very cold outside right now to be taking pics. :)

It took me a few rounds of photos to get it even at the right settings. I thought I had it down no problem then after looking at the pics none of the settings I did were in place for the photos I took but I think I'm good now.

I thought I completely understood how to use aperture but after this assignment I feel like I know nothing! It was extremely frustrating. I hope I can improve with combining my knowledge if shutter speeds from the next class with my knowledge of aperture from the previous class.

I understand after seeing other people pictures, why mine did not turn out the way I wanted them. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to re-due our pictures!

I am happy that you gave us more time. I didnt see much of a difference in my first set of photos. After seeing the other photos it gave me a better understanding of aperture. I will use this to take better photographs then I already do. I am excited that I know how to make that affect with out playing with photoshop.

To All:
Think through each photo. Follow the instructions and the assignment will work out fine. A key thing to remember, opposite of what you expect.
Please don't hesitate to post a question if needed.
Good luck!
