Lesson Plans

How to Bracket Your Exposures:

How to Use Camera Aperture:

In this lesson, students will learn about aperture using DSLR cameras.  Students will apply their knowledge of aperture to open and close the lens of the DSLR in order to allow more or less light into the camera, while learning about f-stop.  They will observe the differences between the aperture openings on the LCD screen of the DSLR camera.  They will apply knowledge of aperture to achieve a well-balanced, successful image, and use proper vocabulary to describe their experiments concerning working with aperture.
