- There have been a lot of numbers…and a lot of theories thrown around in these discussions…of aperture that we've been having…but from experience, both as a teacher and a photographer,…I can tell you that it's not going to be the theory…that trips you up in the field…when you start trying to work…creatively with depth of field.…Rather it's probably going to be your viewfinder…that creates problems and that's simply…because your viewfinder can deceive you…when it comes to depth of field.…I want you to think for a minute…about how the light is traveling…through this camera right now.…This is an SLR so the light is coming into the lens,…it's being bounced by a mirror up into here…where there's a prism or another mirror…that's bouncing it out here…so that I can see it through the viewfinder.…
To be able to have enough brightness through the lens…to see clearly through the viewfinder,…the camera's aperture is open all the way right now.…Even if I have dialed in F16, a very small aperture,…the aperture is still open all the way right now,…
