AtoZ Challenge: PH – A: Aperture

for Aperture.

Aperture is the slit through which light reaches the sensor of the camera. It is part of the lens and is represented by F Number. Bigger the F number, smaller the aperture and lesser light enters the camera. Increasing the F number is known as “stepping down” the aperture. The two effects of changing the aperture are, changing the amount of light that enters through, and the amount of the picture that remains in sharp focus. With smaller aperture values, more area is blurred. Often, lens have a sharp sweet spot, based on the aperture.

  1. I’m going to learn a lot from your A to Z posts. I knew aperture, but that’s probably going to be the last word I know associated with photography!

    • I am sure you would know a lot of the other words too 🙂
      Am very happy that you found the post to your liking! 🙂 Thank you.

  2. Nicely informative post! Thanks for sharing. My youngest daughter has taken some photography lessons and talked about aperture with me before this, but you put it in terms I think I ‘got’ this time. 🙂
