By the way this picture was taken in October...What!
Now all you have to do is decide how blurry you want your picture. There should be an "f number" (real photographers call it an "f stop") that you can change. It will say "f 4.6" or something like that. The smaller your "f stop" the blurrier the background. So read your manual and figure out how to make that number smaller.
The great thing about Aperture Priority Mode is it will take care of your Shutter speed and ISO for you. If you take pictures manually you have to know all about how the Aperture, Shutter and ISO affect each other. Apparently they are all connected in a triangle. But you don’t need to know that if you camera has this setting. This is awesome for me especially since I’m still pretty fuzzy about what ISO is!!

Now here comes the tricky part. When lining up your shot you have to make sure you have a good enough background. If you subject is right in front of something it really doesn’t work very well. Bring it out away from the background.

Notice the really nummy chocolate chip banana bread in the blurry background.
I hope you are able to try this out this week! It is so cool when it works!!
Come back next week for Memory Verse Monday! I will also share another resource for raising godly children.
