Question by Mari Luca: How to use aperture priority on GE digital camera?
I have the dial at top of my camera and I set it on aperture priority but I’m not sure how to use it in order to get the effect of depth and blurr any surrounding background. Can anyone help me figure out how to set this up for a picture?
Also, in the options under aperture priority there are various numbers with “ISO” above them. what does this mean?
Answer by Carlos
To blur the background you’ll need to:
1. Make sure the subject is at least 3 feet away from the background.
2. You will also need to be at least 6 feet away from the subject.
3. Zoom the camera until you only see what you want to shoot in the frame.
4. Focus on the subject, press the shutter release button half way and hold it.
5. Shoot the image… wallah!
Aperture Priority – A on a camera mode dial, is a setting on some cameras that allows the user to choose a specific aperture value while the camera selects a shutter speed to match.
