How does my camera work

Once you understand the basics of photography Andy will move onto the actual functionality of your camera. How to control the light. This is a very hands on stage of training where you get to play with the controls on your camera one at a time and see the actual effect of changing shutter speed, aperture and ISO.

APERTURE:-

The aperture is the hole in the lens that controls how much light gets through the lens to the chip.

The bigger the hole – the more light you get in.

The smaller the hole – the less light you get in.

A given lens will have a maximum aperture quoted on the body of the lens and a zoom lens will often have two different aperture numbers quoted.

A typical kit lens you get with your camera will typically have a maximum aperture around F4.5 or F5.6
