Beginner DSLR Photography basics: Aperture and depth of field guide



Beginner guide to aperture and Depth of Field.
If you want to get a blurry background, or take a landscape that is sharp from to back, then watch this video.

This video tries to explain the basic principle of aperture.

What it is.
What it does
How its used
The effect it has.

Different lenses have different apertures, so please bear that in mind, you lens may not go to f/1.4 or f/22.

Also, I havent talked about diffraction in this video. This is when a lens starts to loose sharpness due to a narrow aperture. This is often seen on lenses at f/11 to f/16 or above, so try not use any higher than f/16 if you can help it.

Thank you for an amazing tutorial. SO many people have tried to explain this ''simply'' and have failed, but you have done it. What i like about your teaching is that you associate the photography terminology with simply terminology which then allows us to make the association in our minds. You have a gift for teaching. Keep up the great work. I look forward to seeing more of it.

Thank you very much for the beginner guide to aperture and depth of field.

I like the idea with the ruler, but not sure why the actual photos weren't shown.

Oh My! This video was sooo helpful. The theory of aperture was always confusing for me. That's why I read many articles, saw videos n all but understood some part of it but was still confused. This video of urs was so awesome that by just watching it once I understood the whole concept. Thanks a ton!

Very helpful. Saw many videos but never got from them how a bigger aperture opening gives less of area in focus, and a smaller aperture opening gives more in focus. Thank you so much.

Amazing. Worked perfectly for me and my Canon t6i.

very informative I have subscribed to your channel hopefully will learn more things from you.

great video. watching in 1.25x speed

"you'll often see them with 'f' infront of them, and maybe with slash …"
I'm amazed how little, most photographers know about the physics behind what they're doing (very often doing quite well)! :D

I'm a medical professional by trade and I'm loving my new hobby. Photography has always been an interest for me and now it's my life long hobby (which I just really started). I found this video very helpful, informative and your teaching skills are superb. My starting camera is a Nikon D3300 and so far, it's a really good camera for me. So, keep up the good work on the videos and thank you so much for your information.
