NYIP : What the F in Photography !

“Photography is not a sport. It has no rules. Everything must be dared and tried!”

-Bill Brandt


I was doing right (that’s what I thought) my photos are alright, I like it! 🙂

Focus! your out of focus mom!

huh? I thought I was making the background blurred , it looks great! my friends like it (well, what are friends for?) support each other! I guess 🙂

So here I am, continuing with my photography studies, Oh! I asked myself, why did I took this on-line course? It seemed it’s not my forte, I love taking photos (automatically) without thinking what aperture I will use, what ISO and What the F? anyway!

NYIP – there’s no such thing as ” good enough”.  I always thought when I look at the viewfinder , I got a good focus, good enough to upload in Facebook 🙂 get as many “like” as you can imagine lol!

Amateurs are accustomed to “good enough” focusing. Pros will settle for only perfect focusing (talking about my perfectionist son, Edge).

So what is the F again?

F-stop (aperture) the lens opening inside the photographic lens and it is measured by F-stops where N =F/D alright, don’t ask me, I took Dentistry because I can’t concentrate a lot when there are numbers 🙂 joke!

simply put : the greater the opening (aperture) more light comes in

which only complicate : the greater the aperture the smaller the F-stop, the shallower the depth of field

the smaller the aperture the higher the F-stop, the greater the depth of field

ISO 200 85mm F1.4

I like the model, I like the picture, it seemed focus but not so.. this could have been better If I focused on her eyes to make it more sharper, the background was blurred indicating a shallow depth of field.

Well, there’s always room for improvement and another photo shoot:-)

Unit one done! passed the exam..on to the 2nd Unit
