Aperture In-Depth

Aperture dictates how much depth of field you will have in your shot. A large aperture will decrease the depth of field and a small aperture will provide a larger depth of field.

How does this affect the depth of field? Generally speaking, the more light that comes in, the shallower the depth of field. If you want a wide depth of field, one where most everything is in focus, you want less light, and therefore a higher f-stop setting. But if you want a shallow depth of field, you’ll allow more light in by setting a lower f-stop setting.
