DJ has now moved onto book two in the series of Photography 4H books. There are three books total, and we generally take a year to complete them. The first chapter is learning about Aperture and speed of your camera. We do not have a real fancy camera like some people buy for their kids, but it does have variable settings for what we need it to do. Aperture simply means how much light is being let in via the lens of the camera. The first two pictures are of a huge spider web built between the back porch and the Magnolia tree. The first one is letting in less light, and the second more. The same exact shot just different lens setting. If you click on them you can see the definite difference. The two photos with the leaves are caterpillar eggs with both sets of lighting. Again you can see the obvious difference. The one with Caitlin and I is the most dramatic. I have a nice tan, but do not wear makeup. The picture with more light makes me look pasty and ghastly, not to mention we were not set for the picture. You can see the definite dramatic difference. The two pictures of the pool were for the speed setting. We need to play around more with this setting. It is supposed to be used when you want motion to freeze. To me it just looks like changing the speed highlighted the waves and made them stand out more. I can't decide whether they look like they are moving or not. Let me know what you think.
