charm photography comm back slash guide if you’ve been asking yourself what is
aperture and photography then you land it on the right video in this video I’m
going to show you exactly what it is and how it works so let’s get right into it
aperture how does it work what does it do
aperture is a part of the exported triangle and it will make your photo
brighter or darker and it also controls your depth of field how much stuff you
can have in focus so the first part making a brighter darker I’m gonna use
so this lens right if the lower the aperture number the brighter the photo
will be because you’re using a wider aperture the iris is water so more like
and come through and as you take the aperture up meaning a higher number and
to close the aperture down letting less light come through so with this example
I got this this manual lens right and I’m wide open at 1.4 and as I close it
down you’ll see the iris close and this is like letting less light come through
the lens and it’ll make your photo darker wide open at 1.4 you’re letting
in a lot of light and then down you know 2.8 3.5 5.6 f/8 f/11 f-22 it gets it
gets more close and it lets in less light so the photo be darker the higher
you go up an aperture number the darker the photo will be in this example I’m
going to show you depth of field so the lower the f-stop so RF 1.8 will be wide
open you would have a shallow depth of field and as you take your f-stops up
you’ll get a deeper depth of field I know a lot of times when we try to
explain aperture will say wide but that’s not a good one you should use
deeper it’s a deeper a depth of field you have more stuff in focus in the
background all right the focus also starts from from the focus distance on
back so if you would sit down your focus distance at you know it’ll start at 2
feet and it’ll be 2 feet on back so we’re going to use this bush I got a
bush right here and I got a statue in the background right now I’m focused on
the bush I got a bush that’s in focus and I have
a statue in the background as you can barely see but as I take my aperture up
so up to 2.5 5.6 f7 f8 I’ll be up to f11
and I’m gonna take it as high as you can go which is f-22 now you can see that
the bushes aren’t focused and the statue in the background is in focus so the
aperture not only controls how bright and how dr. photo is but also controls
how much is in focus as far as depth of field the higher the number the more you
have in focus and the lower the number the less you’ll have them focus right
and that’s how aperture works so let’s say if you were doing group photos and
you had about 5 rows of people you will focus on the person in the front maybe
out of f5 or f8 you will focus on the person in the front and that’s how you
get the person in there back to their focus but if you was to focus on the
person in the back the people in the front would be out of focus because your
aperture it starts at the focus distance from the front on back and review the
aperture will control how bright or how dark the photo is by allowing more or
less light to come through your lens the lower your f-stop the brighter the photo
will be the more wide open the lens will be and higher the f-stop the dockable
photo be because the more closed the lens iris will be a wide open aperture
will give you a shallow depth of field and the more you take your aperture up
the more you can have and feel and focus so a deeper depth of field and that’s it
