Playing With My New Camera: Aperture

I'm taking a little photography class next weekend to learn how to use the non-auto settings of my new camera.  However, in the meantime I found a link to this amazing blog, It's Overflowing, on Pinterest.  The author posted weekly photography lessons last winter and I'm slowly working through them to learn a little.  First lesson - aperture.  In other words, how much light is let in by your camera.  Higher aperture means less light and lower aperture equals more light.  Aperture affects the focus.  So as the aperture gets higher, the objects in the photo are more in focus.  This is one way to blur the background of pics.  Check out my practice photos below!
