The aperture – sharpness of objects

The aperture is a mostly mechanical device on cameras. It regulates the passage of light through the lens or the optical system. Two circularly arranged lamellar plates move into each other in such a way that the passage of light becomes narrower or wider and thus the incident light beam smaller or larger. Exposure time and depth of field depend mainly on the choice of aperture. The f-number indicates the ratio of focal length to aperture width.

Shutter speed – Capture motion with the camera

The shutter speed actually denotes the exposure time. This means that depending on how much time you give the picture, it influences the sharpness of the image or movement. The slower the exposure time, the sharper fast movements become. The control is either purely mechanical or electronic.

The ISO value – Reduces the noise of photos

Film speed is the light sensitivity of photographic plates and films. It is indicated as ISO. With higher light sensitivity you can take pictures in darker surroundings with the same exposure time or you have to reduce the exposure time with the same brightness.
