Aperture Exposure Exercise

Aperture is part of the exposure triangle. It has a direct impact on the amount of light that comes into your camera when you take a shot. Aperture is the size of the hole in the diaphragm made by the blades inside your lens.  It is measured in f/stops.  The higher the f/stop, the smaller the size of the hole, and the less light can come in, so the lower the exposure, resulting in a darker image.   In this exercise you will take a series of shots at higher and higher f/stops, while you are in manual mode, so you can see this effect first hand. At the end of the video you will find example shots of what you can expect to see as a result of the exercise.
