Why aperture matters and makes photography fun

Ok, so I could go on about this for ages but I’ll keep it brief. Aperture is everything. It’s the blurry bit. It picks things out. It helps create separation from a background. It’s how the human eye behaves. It’s more obvious when up close and less obvious when things are far away. Many of the pictures in this post were shot on a 40mm lens where I went as far as F4 and that was it. Sometimes pre-setting a fixed lens with a fixed aperture is a really great way to shoot. Your legs become your zoom and you have little else to think about except what’s going to be on the frame!
