15 Photo Examples of Aperture

15 Photo Examples of Aperture

1. Charlene Hart – This is a great example of depth of field. By having the flower in the middle plane of your photograph, you have a defined middle and great bokeh in your foreground and background. The water droplets make great bokeh!using aperture in photography

2. Judy Macedo – I absolutely love all of the lines in this photo! The leaves of the plant below make a great background and add an interesting pattern to your photo.

3. Peg Brantman – The colors in this photo are exquisite. Your depth of field adds a lot of dimension to the flower. I like the pink flowers in the background to give it a little color too!

4. Mary Covert-Mason – By focusing on your aperture in this photo, you really added some life to an inanimate object. When shooting ordinary objects, I make sure to focus on my aperture to add dimension to the object. This really helps make it stand out which is exactly what you did!

5. Rachel Decker – I love the perspective on this one. You could have taken this from above but you switched up your angle and shot the flower from the ground up. It looks like the flower is sunning itself!

9. Mary Richards – This is a great example of depth of field and different apertures work. When learning aperture, it helps to line the same object up and play around with your aperture to see how your photo is affected.

10. Barbara Berg – Not only does your depth of field add dimension to your photo, the lighting adds to it as well. I like that you focused on the second ring which made it stand out from the rest.
