I’m so excited to announce the winner of the Sweepstakes and the 2010 Client Vote! That will come soon!
Today’s tip is a little lesson about aperture. Last week we talked about shutter speed and how it tells us how long the shutter stays open. F-stops tell us how far the aperture opens. The aperture opens more the smaller the f-stop number. These numbers affect depth of field. I need to explain depth of field before we dig too much further but that’s for next week. For now we’ll just stick with how the f-stop affects the exposure triangle. The lower your f-stops the more open the aperture and the more light will be coming in. So in low-light settings you’ll want to open your aperture or decrease your f-stops to let in more light.
Quick tip for today but next week we’ll find out what else f-stops do (depth of field)! Depth of field is my absolute FAVORITE!!
