Understanding Aperture

Since receiving my new camera, I have had to dig out my old notes from college and refresh my memory on things like lighting, ISO speed, and aperture. I found this on pinterest via thedailydigi, and thought I would pass along. A visual lesson which is sometimes the easiest way to learn! Don't see the difference? Look at the opening in the lens! (The larger the whole, the more light that enters the lens:)
Hope you all are having a great week so far!
The 1000 celebration will continue next week.....HINT: look out for some bloggers sporting some IHOD accessories;)

  2. Great post! I want a new camera, but haven't stopped to do any research or find what I want. Maybe I will find time for it to be an end-of-summer present to myself. ;)

  12. I took photog classes in college and retained nothing! Except the rule of thirds. That's it. I am trying to tackle aperture and shutter speed but it's hard to find time these days. : )

  19. this is perfect. I recently started using a DSLR and right now I'm just using it on it's automatic setting. My goal within the next year is to learn it on manual though and little lessons like this are extremely helpful!
