Aperture. This particular setting is exceedingly important when trying to wrap your head around the basics of manually controlling a camera, but it's also one of the more confusing. For starters, not every camera and lens can achieve the same f/stops (in case you couldn't guess, aperture levels are...

Travel Photo Tips: What is shutter speed, and how does it affect my pictures? Jan 6th, 2011 at 10:00AM: Now that you've got a grip on ISO, it's time to talk about shutter speed as it relates to light.
