Shallow and Deep Depth

This week, I worked on learning aperture. It seems that aperture and shutter speed are some of the most important concepts to understanding what makes great photos. As I practiced, I found that taking pictures with a low aperture was fairly easy for me, and I loved the look of a blurring background with the most important part of the photo in focus. I had a difficult time with a deep depth of field, though. I had a hard time finding images with good composition. After a lot of tries, I found a few that I liked, but I’m going to continue working on it.

Here are the shallow depth of field photos:
