Photography Tip:

  • Aperture: The size of the opening in the lens of the camera, allowing light to pass through to the sensor.
    • Lower aperture – less of the lens is covered, letting in more light. Lower the number = less of image is in focus
    • Higher aperture – more of the lens is covered, less light coming in. Higher aperture = more is in focus.
    • Example of low aperture – The model in focus and background is blurry
    • Example of high aperture – Landscape photography, photography with background in focus
    • How to use it – try Aperture Priority Mode on your camera (Av). This allows you to turn your aperture up or down while accommodating the other settings. This is the setting I use for weddings and events, and what I recommend people use who would like to start moving out of Auto.

    What a great podcast! I am going back to listen to all of them. I have had my Canon forever, but really have not used it to it’s potential. Your piece on aperture is really quite helpful. Thank you!
