    Great article! I’m a portrait photographer and I always struggle with wanting to shoot wide open but end up closing down my aperture because I want to make sure everyone is in focus therefore sacrificing some of the bokeh.

    On the last photo with the 135mm lens, what aperture did you shoot?

    Hi Jody! Lou tells me she took that with her 135mm lens at f/5. She actually has her full settings and setup for that shot and others in her manual settings cheat sheets, which you can get here

    Thank you!! I recently took family pictures and I am blurry in almost all of them (when I am standing behind my husband and son). I couldn’t figure out why, but now I know, I had the camera set at f/1.8 to get my blurry background. Thank you for posting about this!!

    This is so helpful. I am a new photographer and have had my camera for 4 years but have been on auto most of the time. I am trying to come out of my shell and get to manual. The more I read the more I am starting to understand about the exposure triangle. Thanks for the tips!
