About This Class

In this class I'll illustrate the importance of selecting the right aperture for your scenario. We'll talk about ways to add creamy out-of-focus backgrounds in your portraits, what an f/stop is and how to push your photography to the fullest.

I'll show you a demonstration for achieving your desired Depth of Field as well as the many ways to achieve a properly exposed photo through equivalent exposure.

This class pairs well with my Shutter Speed class but can also be viewed independently :)

I loved the natural way that Tabitha communicated in these videos. A lot of the teachers of the classes I have taken from Skillshare seem so scripted and uncomfortable. When listening to Tabitha I felt like we were two friends sitting across from each other and she was sharing her knowledge of photography with me. I learned a ton and will definitely take more classes from her. Well done!
She is incredibly knowledgable on photography and has a lot to share! I learned a lot and would recommend to anyone who is interested in photography!
So easy to understand. Loved this tutorial thank you so much
