I admit it.
I rarely, if ever, adjust my aperture.
The vast majority of the time I want my background blurry, so I leave my settings on the largest aperture my lenses will allow, which is about 5.6 for both my kit lens and macro lens.
Today I was catching up on Darcy's 31 Days to a Better Photo series.
So I decided to take it on, since I've never tested this out with my camera/lenses and really haven't given it much thought since my college photo classes!
I used my kit lens for my testing and was surprised to learn that it has 17 total f-stops, which is a lot more than I thought!
Hmm. Imagine that.
Since there were so many, I only made a collage of 10 of them, but I think it gets the point across.
