In an effort for my friend Tyler and I to jump back into photography, we mutually decided to spend a little time at the lake to practice for a bit.
The lesson of the day seemed to revolve around aperture. Defined by Webster’s Dictionary: Aperture -an opening, as a hole, slit, crack, gap, etc.
For those of you who are new to the world of photography, this simply means how big your shutter opens to let light into your camera for you digital sensor or film to make the picture. The tricky thing about aperture is remembering that the less amount of light that you want traveling to your sensor, the larger the aperture number needs to be. It works vice versa as well. The more light = smaller the number.
So, for instance, if you were taking pictures by a lake, like Tyler and I, and it was beautiful, bright sunshiny day, you would want experiment around the mid – high aperture number range.
Hope this helps everyone! Happy Snappin’!
