Changing the Aperture of My Camera

Generally, whenever someone talks about clicking beautiful pictures, they are concerned with general things like lighting and scenic beauty. It is not often when people stop to actually think about how to achieve these conditions or how to work with the existing conditions. We usually see this type of practice in urban photography where we try to get the best available shots from different angles,

Many people try and bend the physical conditions or change to a site which has the perfect natural light required for their shorts. However, if you adjust the aperture of the camera in the right manner, all these problems are solved instantly. Once you learn this, adjusting photography lighting would become a child’s play for you.


What is the aperture of a camera?

Generally, people learn it as a fundamental of photography along with shutter speed and ISO. However, there is much confusion between these three terms for the beginners.


Photo studio makes extensive use of this property of the lens to get amazing and regulated shots. It reduces the burden of finding the right conditions for photography.

Think of it as the eye of your camera. Just as your eye has an opening in the form of Iris, so does the camera through the lens aperture. Even the function of both these parts is similar. Both of them can either shrink or widen to regulate the entry of light beyond it.


Why do you need to adjust the aperture of the camera?

Most ignorant people rely on the camera to automatically adjust the aperture so that they can click the photos. Mostly all photography camera that is sold in the market is capable of auto adjusting their aperture.

This is not always the best course of action for you if you want a professional shot. The main reason for adjusting the aperture of the camera is to capture the right amount of light.

You can both brighten and darken your image if you adjust your camera’s aperture. Photography classes often stress about adjusting your aperture in accordance with the surrounding light before clicking a picture.


How to adjust your camera’s aperture?

To understand how you can adjust a camera’s aperture, you will first need to know what the F-numbers are.

In the simplest of languages, we think of F-stops as a relation between the focal length and the diameter of the aperture. They regulate how much or how little light enters the camera. On a typical camera, you will find the range of these numbers from F3.5 to F22. The dial for changing the aperture is present on the external part of the camera itself.

Most photography blogs use DSLR cameras which generally changes the light intensity to over half for every F-stop change.


How does it affect our photograph?

In the simplest of terms, we have two ranges of these F-numbers, the high F-numbers and low F-numbers.

When we talk of using high F-numbers, we get Narrow depth of field along with Fast shutter speed. High F-numbers give us Wide depth of field along with Slow shutter speed.

Picture depth: Generally, when we take small F-numbers, we run the risk of getting our background out of focus. Only the central object is in high focus, which works for the portrait or images having the central focus on a single object. However, we can remove blurring of the image to a great extent with rapid shuttering of the camera while clicking images. This setting is a favourite amongst portrait pro photographer.

Moment through the blur:  This is amazing while capturing moving images as it allows you the freedom of showing fluid motion. For this type of wide range shot, you will typically need a tripod and a lot of patience since the slow speed of aperture help in capturing the shot. We use high F-numbers for such shots since they provide such vivid shots of moving objects while ignoring the backdrop of the picture.

Freezing the object: the setting for this type of work is generally work based. However, you will most likely want to have a low F-number along with high shutter speed. This will prevent the image from blurring while also giving us a good focus on the object. It helps us take a freeze frame shot and appear as if the object in the image is captured in time.

Since it is a fundamental of photography, you will need to keep it in mind whenever you take a shot. It will help you produce high-value shots.
