Photo homework 1

I have been so looking forward to learning how to do what I have done in these pictures.



Can you tell what the difference is? Depth of field. You can see everything clearly in the first picture from the flowers to the background. The second has a blurred background. I have always wondered how photographers do this and now I know!

I'm glad you had flowers to practice this one. When I started practicing I had to use boring apples. Although it made me practice with focus...so I guess it was good in a way.

I wish I had an easy answer for everyone! I have been learning to shoot in manual mode, which means that everything is custom! You have to use f-stop and shutter speed and have the right exposure etc. etc. in order for everything to work. So I can't just say push this and this and viola! Sorry :( I guess you will have to take a class so you can learn too!
