Aperture is one of the foundations of proper exposure for manual camera settings. Measured in a unit called F/Stops, aperture adjusts how much light enters into the camera – this is exactly how your pupil works in your eye!

For this assignment you will be taking a series of paired photos, only making adjustments to the aperture setting. Your pairs of photos need to be taken in the same position (no zooming)

The goals for this are to 1) get you familiar with using a DSLR 2) notice how an image changes based on the aperture size.

Pro Tips

Give yourself 20mins to return to class and upload your photos. This will also allow you a chance to backup your images on to OneDrive.

Create separate folders for each assignment. This will help you access B-Side images for future tasks.
