Opening the aperture

This week's lesson has us experimenting with the aperture, the adjustable opening through which you can control how much light enters the camera. As I didn't feel much like going out this morning, I fooled around at home for a bit shooting a Buddha from Nepal against a piece of aizome (a traditional Japanese indigo fabric) hung in front of a window. What you see below is a composite of three images to show the differences in F stops, from larger at the left to smaller on the right.
