Photography 101 – What is Aperture?

One of the first things you will learn when you switch your dial to Manual, is aperture! You need to understand how your aperture controls how your picture is going to look. If you want everything in focus you would use a smaller aperture and if you want to have a shallow depth of field you would use a wider aperture to let more light in.

I found some pretty great tutorials I wanted to share with you:
