About Camera Aperture
Benjamin Perlin
Introduction
• Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Benjamin “Ben” Perlin enjoys working with engineering
groups such as the Society of Automotive Engineers International. In his leisure time,
Benjamin Perlin counts photography as one of this favorite activities.
Novice photographers should start learning the fundamental principles of how cameras
and lenses work before they delve too deeply into the camera's more complicated features.
One of the basic things a beginning photographer needs to learn is camera aperture.
Aperture is how wide the camera lens opens. The wider the aperture, the more light the
lens allows into the camera. The aperture value of a lens is expressed in f-stops (the letter
“f” means focal length). The lower the f-number, the wider the lens opening.
In addition to brightness, the other key element that aperture dictates is the depth of field,
or how much of the photo appears in focus. Lenses that open wider give a shallow depth of
field, which means the subject of the shot is in focus, but the background is out of focus.
Conversely, narrower apertures allow more areas of the shot to be in focus.
