Day 2: Aperture, Focus, ISO | Better Photography for Your Blog

ISO is an important feature that you can set on your camera and helps you improve the quality of your picture. I will share with you the basics that I know about that and the way to use the “f” on your camera, which is called aperture.

How to focus on something: This feature is usually made easy on most cameras nowadays. On DSLR cameras (at least on ones that I have worked with) you can manually focus on something by turning the ring on your lens. Here’s how:
How to make a blurry background (f): The blurry background that you see in photos is actually called depth of field, and it makes pictures look a lot more professional. In order to work with that, you need to change the “f” on your camera, which is called aperture. You can see below how to do that, and keep in mind: small F = blurry background; bigger F = not blurry background. 

What to use ISO for: The ISO is a setting that also helps when the light you have isn’t the ideal one. When taking normal, daylight pictures, you can leave your ISO on a lower ISO (100-200). However, if you take a picture in a darker setting (for example of Christmas tree lights in a dark room), you might want to use a higher ISO, in order to get a better effect of the lights. Keep in mind, though, that as the ISO gets higher, so does the noise in your photos.

We achieved good lighting, everything you want is in focus, now let’s go on to the fun stuff: composition and perspective. Next I’ll show you a few ways I learned work best for taking more interesting pictures.
