Example text

For some pictures—for example, a landscape—you may want a smaller aperture for maximum depth of field so that everything from near foreground to distant background is sharp. But perhaps in a portrait you will want a larger aperture to decrease the depth of field so your subject is sharp but the background is soft and out of focus. com The Aperture Controls Light and Depth of Field A small aperture increases depth of field so foreground and background are sharp (top) and a large aperture decreases depth of field so the background is soft (bottom).

When you photograph a subject, your camera’s autoexposure system sets an exposure so that the subject appears in the final image with an average brightness of middle gray regardless of its actual brightness. When you photograph subjects that have an overall tone lighter or darker than middle gray, they will be middle gray in the final image and therefore look too light or dark. For example, if you photograph a white card, a gray card, and a black card, and each completely fills the viewfinder when the exposure is calculated, each of the cards will be middle gray in the captured image.

When metering is on, a bar under the exposure level indicator shows you how much you are under (-) or over (+) exposed. If the bar under the indicator flashes at the -2 or +2 end of the scale it means you are off by more than two stops. • When metering is off, the exposure level indicator is also not active. Using Manual (M) Mode 1. With the Mode Dial set to M (manual), press the shutter button halfway down and then release it to activate metering so the exposure level indicator shows how much you are over or under the recommended exposure.
