Hi, I'm Marika Neumann, and I'm going to show you how to adjust the lens aperture. The things you will need: a camera and a memory card. The lens aperture controls things such as lighting and depth of feel. In photography, the lens aperture is measured by the F stop number. To change this, hold down the A/V button on your camera and turn the wheel on the top. The lower the F stop number, the brighter your shot will be and the smaller your window will focus. If you bump your F stop up higher, more will be in focus and your image will be darker. Setting the lens aperture correctly will usually be the difference between a great photo and an average photo. And that is how to adjust the lens aperture.
