[Week 2]To be a good photographer..we should know about APERTURE!!

Again..i’m back with the new term..APERTURE!

I like my classmate entry in the elearning, which i can easily understand.. *understand je, retinye tidak..haha*

The size of the opening in the lens when a picture is taken. The larger the hole the more light that gets in – the smaller the hole the less light (quoted by Rafidah..thanks to u!)

another explanation is given by Lai.. The representative in terms of f/1.8, f/2, f/2.8, f/3.5, f/5.6, f/8, f/11, or even f/16. The smaller number means a bigger opening (it needs a faster shutter speed) while the bigger number means smaller aperture (it needs a slower shutter speed) .
The application part is the smaller aperture, usually it is for catching scenery while the bigger aperture is for catching portraits or the object you plan to make it as the main attraction.

here is one example of small value of number..which means large hole!

WOW!! a great image!

For starters, the aperture was kept to a low F number of f/5.6.

One important thing to remember here, the size of the aperture has a direct impact on the depth of field, which is the area of the image that appears sharp. A large f-number such as f/32, (which means a smaller aperture) will bring all foreground and background objects in focus, while a small f-number such as f/1.4 will isolate the foreground from the background by making the foreground objects sharp and the background blurry.
