PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS FOR YOU:
Aperture sounds like a mathematical equation you learned in middle school, but it's actually a measure of the opening your lens makes when you take a photo, which also controls the amount of light hitting your camera’s sensor. Basically, a smaller opening = less light, while a bigger opening = more light. Simple, eh?! Not really, but once you understand aperture, you can get super creative in how you photograph
The size of your aperture is measured by a f/stop number. The higher your f/stop, the smaller the opening and the less light hitting the camera’s sensor. The lower your f/stop, the bigger the opening and more light that hits the sensor.
Aperture also controls the depth of field (DOF) in your image. Shooting with a wide-open aperture such as f/1.4 - f/4 (a shallow depth of field) lets in more light but will result in a lot of background (and foreground) blur. This is called Bokeh and is highly desirable if shooting portraits or creative scenes. If you’re shooting with a narrow aperture such as f/9 - 16 for example, everything in your shot will be in focus- a large depth of field, but let in less light.
