Apertures by StuMac1985 Apertures by StuMac1985
I decided to produce this as an example of use of apertures and aperture priority.

The above images are taken at standard full-stops from f/1.4 to f/16. Inlaid into the images are the f-stops they were at and also the exposure time. As you can see, as the aperture size decreases (larger f/ number) one full stop the exposure time halves to produce a photo of the same exposure.

On modern (D)SLR's it is possible to select third steps giving even greater flexibility. Than shown above, for more information of F-numbers and apperture sizes see [link]

This is sooo helpful! It's really easy to tell now what all of the f/whatever means! It makes no sense to me and this really helps to see what they'll each do.

Great demonstration of DoF.
It would be too cliched to say 'a picture is worth a thousand words' so I won't...
Nice image as well.
