What is Aperture?


Aperture is the aperture of a camera lens. The aperture determines how much light enters through the lens and into your camera’s sensor or film, which can be adjusted either automatically by the camera itself or manually with specific aperture settings on cameras. A wide aperture allows more light to enter in than a narrow aperture does, so it’s generally used for photography in low-light conditions.

The size of an aperture is measured as f/stop numbers; lower numbers mean narrower openings while higher number means wider openings.

Aperture can add dimension to your photos by controlling depth of field. It’s a lens setting which you typically find on DSLR cameras that allows photographers the ability to control how much of their photo is sharp, or not. At one extreme, aperture gives you a blurred background with a beautiful shallow focus effect. For more detailed shots where all areas are in complete focus and looking crisp and clear as possible… this would be considered “f/1” for example-which will make an image extremely bright but also very grainy). On the other end of things when focusing on something closer up like someone’s face closeup (portrait), f/22 may have been used – it’ll give them better skin tones while still keeping most details intact .
