Practice makes perfect. Today I was taking multiple shots of the same scene and changing the f/stop and/or the exposure bias to see the changes on the final photos. The first two photos demonstrate the difference of simply changing the f/stop. I used the aperture priority setting on my camera and by changing the f/stop the shutter speed automatically adjusts itself. In the first photo the f/stop is set at 4.2. I focused on the power plant and with less light coming in the lens the fence in the foreground is barely visible. In the second photo the f/stop is set to 18. With more light coming through the lens the fence is more visible. I like the composition of the last two photos and wanted to share them, yet they aren’t phenomenal photographs. The basketball net is a bland photograph since there is no virtually no color. I will repost it after I have altered it in photoshop. I like the lines and drops of water on the monkey bars but again the overwhelming amount of grey in the photo make it bland. I will also run this photo through photoshop and see what I can do to make the picture pop.
