One-Point Advice from Seki-san ①~③

One-Point Advice from Sekisan ① - How to Blur the Background to Emphasize a Subject -
   By changing the aperture (F-number), you can change the amount of light that enters the lens, and thus the range of focus. The smaller you make the aperture, the smaller the range of focus becomes, so you can really make the subject stand out.

One-Point Advice from Seki-san ② - How to Show the Beautiful Colors of Flowers -
   To adjust the color of flowers to your liking, use the exposure compensation function. By increasing the exposure compensation to lighten colors, and decreasing the exposure compensation to darken them, you will be able to come closer to your desired color. Try taking a few photos with varying compensation settings so that you can pick your favorite one.

One-Point Advice from Seki-san ③ - How to Adjust Shutter Speed -
   Shutter speed refers to how long a camera’s shutter is open, and changing it changes the way a moving subject appears in a photograph. For example, if you want a flowing waterfall to appear as a line, you should lower your shutter speed and ISO setting. On the other hand, by raising the shutter speed and ISO setting, you can capture splashing or spraying water. Simply by changing your shutter speed, you can completely change the way moving water appears. Although, to avoid blurry photographs, using a tripod is recommended.
