What is an Aperture?

An aperture is the opening in a camera lens that allows light to pass through and onto the film. The size of this opening is one of the most important factors in determining how much light will reach the film, and therefore how much detail will be captured in an image. Generally speaking, smaller apertures result in greater depth of field, while larger apertures allow more light to pass through and produce a brighter image overall. While there are many factors that come into play when choosing an aperture setting, understanding how it works and what it can do is essential for any photographer looking to take control of their craft. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced pro, knowing your aperture can help you capture stunning images every time.
