Aperture/Depth Of Field

The aperture stop of a photographic lens can be adjusted to control the amount of light reaching the image sensor. In combination with variation of shutter speed, the aperture size will regulate the image sensor’s degree of exposure to light, which will in turn change the focus of the image.

 

Aperture F/5.6

This is the lowest F-stop on the camera I used and this has a large opening, meaning the sensor is exposed to more light and subjects in the background and foreground are less focussed.DSC_0005.png

 

Aperture F/36

This is the highest F-stop on the camera I used and this a small opening, meaning that the sensor is exposed to less light and and subjects in the background and foreground are more focussed.
