We’re used to upping the ISO to speed up the shutter speed, but few people consider what it’s going to do the aperture. Increasing the ISO makes the camera more sensitive, so allows a faster shutter or a smaller aperture, which changes the depth of field.
1/8000th, f2.8, 400ISO
1/8000th, f5.6, 1600ISO
1/8000th, f13, 6400ISO
You can see that the droplets stay the same, but the background comes into focus as the ISO increases.
We have a good selection of pictures for this month’s theme. Lots of chocolate, cheesecake and cash and not in that particular order. This did give people the opportunity to be a little more creative than usual and put some politics into their pictures.
Here’s a collage of everything, and then the individual pictures. There are more on the Facebook page.
We like pictures taken from a low angle – it’s not compulsory but often gives some more drama to an otherwise uninteresting picture. Given that were all feeling miserable poor and cold after Christmas, we thought low was a suitable theme. Please bear in mind that these photographs are taken by non-professionals and often on some very dodgy cameras.
We had some the best pictures we’ve ever had this month from Finland to Weston Super Mare – see if you agree. There were a lot of snowdrops – it’s that time of year!!
