APERTURES: QUICK REFERENCE

Tue Sep 20, 2016 10:17 pm

USE A LARGE APERTURE WHEN…
1. You want to isolate your subject: A large aperture will create a shallow zone-of-focus, meaning your subject will pop from its background.

2. You want a fast shutter speed: A large aperture allows more light to enter the camera, producing fast shutter speeds – ideal when trying to capture fast action or preventing camera shake when shooting handheld.

3. You wish to create attractive bogey: A shallow depth-of-field can create beautifully defused, out of focus backgrounds. You can create arty looking results by controlling what is and isn’t recorded sharp.

USE A MID APERTURE WHEN…
1. You want to maximize image sharpness: Due to the technical aspects of lens design, mid-range f/numbers – f/8 and f/11 – tend to yield the sharpest results, often being the lens’s optical ‘sweet spot’.

2. You are shooting handheld: A mid-range aperture of f/8 is often a good option when shooting handheld in good light, offering useful levels of depth-of-field, and generating a practically fast shutter speed

USE A SMALL APERTURE WHEN…
1. You want the entire scene to be in focus: A small aperture will create extensive depth-of-field, perfect when you are shooting landscapes and cityscapes and require front-to-back sharpness.

2. You want a slow shutter speed: Smaller f/stops require a longer corresponding shutter speed – useful if you desire a longer exposure to creatively blur subject motion.

3. You want a starburst: If you want to add a starburst effect to your shots, select your lens’s smallest aperture. The effect of diffraction will render any point source of light within the frame – like the sun – as a starburst shape.

I hope this Quick reference help you Guys... Enjoy!
