Aperture Workshop Task

Aperture is a very useful tool for photojournalists as it allows us to target certain depths of field to focus on, making either the foreground or the background stand out. I aimed to test this by taking photo of my colleague Rosie in a large open space and changing the aperture type so that I could get a high aperture, a low aperture and an aperture between the two. I did so but I slightly skewed the focus on the first image resulting in the van standing out more than Rosie or the building.

My first photo was taken with an aperture of F-5, my second photo with an aperture of F-16 and my third photo with an aperture of F-25. There is a noticeable difference between the photos, as evidenced by the brightness of the image, and the resolution of it’s subjects.
