Hadiyah photography practice


Low f-stop, low shutter speed
Lower f-stop, raised mug

A lower f-stop allowed me to take focused pictures of an object that was closer to the camera, which created a blurrier background also. A high f-stop allowed me to focus on more in the picture. I liked the way the lower f-stop looked because it created a more interesting picture and allowed the photographer to take control of what they wanted the person to see.

I also messed around with other settings but found I still needed to get the hang of using the f-stop setting first. I realised that lower ISO increased the brightness and shutter speed decreased the sharpness, such as in the second male picture. I found that I could view these effects better on a human subject.
