    I was messing around on Wikipedia and came across the Depth of Field entry. There's a diagram in there that really helped me to understand exactly how aperture works inside a camera.

    Just thought I'd share it.. hopefully it helps others understand. I always knew what it did, to a point, but never understood how it worked.
