Aperture: Letting in Light

When you change your aperture setting, what are you adjusting? How do f-stops figure in? How do you enhance your depth of field? Find out with Groupon's quick-snap guide to apertures.

To understand aperture, photographers like to say, one must picture water dripping from a leaking bucket. The size of the hole in the bucket determines how much water escapes; as the hole gets larger, more and more water comes pouring out at once. Aperture is like the hole in the bucket—its size determines how much light will pass onto the film. Five to nine blades create this peephole at the lens’s opening and are completely adjustable to the photographer’s liking. The aperture range—or degree of adjustability—is typically etched into the lens itself in a variable called f-stops, with larger f-stop values representing smaller apertures and vice versa.

Aperture is the main component in creating the desired depth of field for any given image. When a camera is set with a large aperture, more light will filter through the lens to create a smaller depth of field, pulling only a portion of the image into focus and leaving the remainder of the shot artfully blurred. The exact same shot taken with a smaller aperture will result in a larger depth of field with all planes captured in focus.

Aleksey was great to work with! His website's gallery speaks for itself. He does beautiful work. We had a hard time narrowing down our favourite photos!

Aleksey was the most gentle, calm, kind soul. I was a very nervous mama - having never had a professional shoot done before, and especially having an overly tired toddler who is slow to warm up to strangers. He was so beyond patient and relaxed with both of us. He gave her time to do her own thing and went out of his way to get her silly and sweet side to come out. I haven't seen the pictures yet, but from a very quick sneak peek he showed me from his camera before we left, the end results will be as amazing as the experience of the shoot. He has far exceeded my expectations already and found himself a new loyal customer. Thank you, Aleksey!
