You may wonder why the size of the aperture matters to you as a photographer, but be assured that it does. The size of your lens aperture determines the depth of field in your photographs.

Minimalism Makes You Feel Good - Besser leben durch Minimalismus #punchline #satire #pointe

And that stuff costs money. Also a stress factor. Without the stuff you save nerves, time and money.

Ohne das Zeug spart man Nerven, Zeit und Geld.
