If you’re outside in the sun, your pupil gets really small (such as the small hole in the lens when you change your aperture to f/16) to prevent too much light from getting in.

You have to be really careful when shooting with a wide aperture (such as f/2.8) because the area of the picture that will be in focus is REALLY small – like a couple of inches.

In my opinion, for the type of photography y’all do for the blog, the biggest no-no is using the dinky little flash on your camera (whether you’re using a point and shoot or a dslr, that flash is just NOT going to give you good light).

Just a couple of quick pointers that you can come back to after reading the tutorial. You use a low aperture when you want a small area of the picture to be in focus, or when you’re photographing a person (it creates a pretty, blurry background).

Smaller numbers such as f/2.8 are also called “wide” apertures, because the hole in the lens that lets in light is “wide” open to let in as much light as possible. When you’re in a dark room, your pupil gets really wide to let in a lot of light (just like a wide aperture such as f/2.8 lets in a lot of light).

Do I want the sun against my back SHINING on the object or do I want to be FACING the sun when I snap the picture?

The ideal location to set up would be a covered porch or in the shade of a building.

tutorial is a great guide to understanding your camera, and how to change the settings to get the focus (and background blur) that you want, as well as how to properly expose your pictures so they look better straight out of camera.

Let me know if you have any questions – the easiest way to do this is to post the question on the FB group but make sure to tag me when you post the question.Watch this video below, like and share with family, friends, loved ones, neighbours and all you see around, but be sure to watch this video in a place where your loud laughter will be tolerated because this video will make you laugh out loud.Okay, we’re doing things a little differently this month.Make sure to post your best picture of each assignment with good lighting, focus, and proper exposure.Include your camera settings in the description (aperture, shutter speed, and ISO) because this will help me when I offer CC on the images. I’m that photographer who’s supposed to be writing tutorials every month.So place the items near the edge of the shade (be careful when composing the image in the camera before clicking the shutter – you only want shade in the picture, not the bright sunny area outside of the shade). If you look at the previous lighting tutorial I posted, you can get an idea of where to stand.If the window is really big and you want even lighting, you can stage your setup facing the window and you would stand with your back to the window.Just remember, when you use a fast shutter speed, you’re letting in less light, so you need to compensate for that with a wider aperture to let in more light. I want everyone to get out and really practice their exposures this month.I want you to photograph one staged photo indoors using good light, and one staged photo outdoors using good light (remember, open shade is always your friend).🙂 There won’t be any specific “homework” with this blog post – just read through the tutorial, comment on the FB page (making sure to tag me so I see the message) if you have any questions, and try to apply the answers I’ve given in your future photo shoots. Exactly where outside would be the best place to “set up”?I remember reading something about putting your object in the shade…the EDGE of the shade and then standing back & snapping the pics.
