Aperture Tips

1.Aperture

Aperture controls the amount of light the lens lets in and the depth of field in an image — this determines how bright the image will be and how much of the area behind/in front of the subject will be blurred. Aperture is counted in f-stops on any camera — denoted as f2.8, f3.5, f8, f16 and so on. A lower f-number means a wider aperture which in turn means a shallow depth of field. This highlights the subject and is ideal for portraits. A higher f-number or narrow aperture keeps everything in in-focus. This works great for landscape photographs.

Lower ISOs mean better quality images overall, so there is always a trade-off. A higher ISO level makes the camera more sensitive to available light and therefore is ideal for use in low light environments. At higher ISO levels, cameras tend to add a lot of grain in the image. This will be one of the primary differences between cheap and expensive DSLRs: with more expensive ones, you will be able to push the ISO up to 800, 1600, 3200 and more to still get good, noise-free results.
