Re: Yes... wait no

It's important to know, or remember, that aperture is selected generally to manage depth of field, not exposure. As you are creating your picture, you determine how you will isolate your subject through depth of field. The perspective is chosen by focal length. The mood is conveyed through lighting. Motion through shutter speed. ISO impacts noise and dynamic range. It's up to you as a photographer to make your images the way that you like with those variables. But understand what the manipulation of each variable achieves.
