If you are new to film photography, aperture priority may seem like a daunting task. However, it is actually quite simple. Aperture priority allows you to control the depth of field in your photos. Depth of field is the amount of the scene that is in focus. A large aperture (low f-stop number) will result in a shallow depth of field. This means that only a small portion of the scene will be in focus. A small aperture (high f-stop number) will result in a deep depth of field. This means that most of the scene will be in focus. One of the benefits of using aperture priority is that it takes the guesswork out of setting the shutter speed. The camera will automatically choose the shutter speed that will result in the correct exposure. This is especially helpful in low-light situations. Aperture priority is a great way to get started in film photography. It is simple to use and it takes the guesswork out of setting the shutter speed. Give it a try the next time you are out shooting!
