It's another rainy day here in Dunedin, so it was housebound photography today. After reading some photography blogs I thought I would play around with aperture priority. This I learned, controls the depth of field, or how much of your image is in focus. I started off taking photos of my tomatoes.
I then watched a video on how to make the background dark by using a very small aperture and lighting your subjects. This was hard to do in aperture priority because the camera wanted to set a long shutter speed to make up for the lack of light. So I had to move to manual and choose a shorter shutter speed until I got the effect I was looking for. This is only playing around with a lamp to the side and I bounced the light off a piece of white card. But it was fun :)
