I got my DSLR back in September 2014 and played around with it straight away but clearly did not know what I was doing. I googled a bit and found some tutorials and fiddled with the settings but never had much structure in my self teaching. Hopefully, with Emma's workshops, I will now get to know my DSLR much better and actually have some understanding about how it works.
This week the focus was on aperture; a setting I have used before as I love getting those 'blurry in the background' images - I know that's not technical speak but you know exactly what I mean! Ideally I wanted a bright sunny day for this but the weather wasn't playing ball so I made do with what I had. I had a go outdoors taking photos on the highest and lowest aperture settings at that given time.
In the evening with indoor lighting I attempted a bokeh shot.
I feel happy with that as a starting point!
