Photography Tip 4 of 12 ~ Choose the Right Camera Aperture

Insect Macro Photo Tip 4 of 12: Choose an appropriate camera aperture setting to control and achieve sufficient Depth of Field. Large f-stop number (small aperture) provides maximum depth of field while small f-stop number (large aperture) minimizes depth of field. The photographic goal is to obtain a razor sharp insect photography images picture while leaving the background in blur. An out of focus background solely stirs all attention to the insect and is much desired for insect macro photographs. Adjust your ISO setting as necessary to compensate for slower shutter speeds when shooting with small apertures.

Good light and happy photo making! Juergen
