The other half of our introduction project is aperture. Altering the aperture will affect the depth of field of the picture. The aperture is measured in f/stops. The lower number of f/stops means the lens has a larger opening making the depth of field less. You would want to choose a lower number when you want the background to be blurred and the focus of the picture to be sharp. The higher number of f/stops menas the lens has a smaller opening, increasing the depth of field. A higher number would make the entire image much sharper. The goal of this project was to experiment with different apertures and show how it changes.
