We Love Blurry Backgrounds

It was a very exciting week as our students took the first step towards using their cameras in manual mode!

Lesson three in our Enthusiast Photography Course is all about aperture, which is one of the three elements of exposure, and we need to understand those elements in order to shoot in manual mode. Aperture is responsible for those blurry backgrounds we all love and strive for!

It’s always a challenge to take that first step, but it’s exciting to discover you can control the look of your images! Our student’s challenge was to produce two images, one with a blurry background and one with everything in focus.

We’re sharing a handful of their incredible photos to show you they totally nailed it!
