Learn how to enable Aperture Priority mode on the Nikon D3200 and then select the aperture f-number of your choice.

What's Aperture Priority Good For?
Aperture priority is great for portraits, food, products, nature, architecture and landscape photography. This mode allows you to control how much of the subject or scene is in focus. Lower f-numbers shorten the area in focus (shallow depth of field), which is great for isolating subjects against a silky smooth background. Higher f-numbers lengthen the area in focus (long depth of field), which is great for landscape photography where you want everything in focus.

Written Instructions:
1. You can enable aperture priority mode on the Nikon D3200 by rotating the mode dial to the letter 'A'
2. Then using the command dial (near the thumb rest), rotate it to the left to select a lower f/number and to the right to select a higher f/number
