Weekly Photography Tip
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.

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!
