Aperture and Field of Depth
If an aperture is to be explained in simple terms, then it is how you can control the size of the camera’s lens. The larger an aperture is, the more light it will let into the camera. While this may have been simple to understand, grasping how aperture’s size is measured is a bit tricky. This is because it is measured in f-stops. The higher the f-stop values, the lower the amount of light that will be let into the camera. Thus, a lower f-stop value such as f/22 will let in a small amount of light as compared to an aperture set at f/2.8. How can you use this information to take better pictures? Well, the f-stop values influence exposure. So, if you want a brighter photo, you can let more light in by increasing the f-stop value. This nifty trick will come in handy in situations where there is less light and pictures come out dark. The reverse is true for when you are shooting outside on a sunny day.
