Weekly Photography Tip

We’ve been going over the exposure triangle the last few weeks. ISO, shutter speed, and the importance of tack sharp images to present to our readers (and potential brands and magazines!)

Today, let’s chat about aperture (this is part one, next week will be part 2). Setting the aperture requires some thought and decision-making. This setting can be used to creatively make your subject stand out from the background and be prominent in the image. It’s how we obtain the ‘dreamy’ blurriness we love in an image. It’s also called bokeh.

The lower the number, the more bokeh (background blurriness) you will achieve. The higher the numbers, the more depth of field (sharp from the foreground of the scene to the background in the scene) you will achieve.

Here are the main points to consider when photographing for your blog. Of course, there are many ways to translate this for your particular subject, I’m using the scenario of photographing home decor.

  • Do you want the whole room in focus? Use high numbers like 18 & 22
  • Do you want to capture a detail in the room and blur the background? Use low numbers like 1.8 or 2.8
  • Do you want something in between those two? Use middle numbers like 7.1 or 10

Stay tuned for next week – I’ll be covering part 2 of the aperture discussion! If you have any questions up to this point in our photography tips, please feel free to ask me! I’ll help the best I can.

Now, let the party begin!

Let’s start sharing! Because this is a party, we encourage all who link up to visit several other bloggers who have linked as well – comments and pins are a great way to spread the love!

Before you get started, take a look at our guidelines:

  • This party is for home decor and home-related posts only (recipes, organizing, DIY, crafts, etc.). Link up to 3 related posts. Please do not link up informational posts that do not relate to the topic.
  • If you would please not link up shops, advertising, round-ups, other link parties, or any posts promoting sales, we would appreciate it.
  • DO NOT PIN FROM IMAGES ON THIS PAGE (it just won’t work right on Pinterest). However, please visit the original post/source and pin from there. That works perfectly!
  • Please make sure that your images are in a jpeg or png format. If we can’t save your image, we may not be able to feature you. So sad!
  • By linking to the party, you give us permission to share your projects on our blogs and social media. We will always give proper credit with a no-pin image.

We’re looking forward to all of your fun posts this week! Give us your best!

  1. I’m new here, and I’m sure your content is great but I can’t read it because of the ads. Up to five at a time, jumping around and taking up most of the screen. I follow you on a tablet and find it impossible. I know this is how you make your income, but yeesh!

    1. Hi Suzanne! I’m so glad you left your feedback about my site and I’m sorry you are having trouble reading the free tutorials we offer here. The ads help to pay for the blog (kinda like paying rent if I had a brick and mortar storefront) and the ads also help us to continue to provide the free step-by-step upcycling tutorials we share with our readers. The ads foot the bill so that readers can enjoy and learn from our project tutorials free of charge. I do appreciate your input. Let me mention that if you continue to read our blog, feel free to ‘x’ out of the ads. Each one has an ‘x’ that will close the ad. I hope this helps with any future blogs you read! Hope you have a great day. 😊

    1. Thanks Michelle for stopping by! I hope all is well with you 🥰
