ap·er·ture

space through which light passes in an optical or photographic instrument, especially the variable opening by which light enters a camera.

Perfect exposure is made up of a balance of Shutter Speed,ISO, and Aperture. The aperture is what determines how much light is let intothe camera. To create truly stunning images where the subject is in focus andthe background is out of focus, photographers rely on a shallow depth of field,and wide open aperture.  

In 1980 Canon developed a lens, which to this day, has oneof the lowest effective apertures. In creating this highly sought-after lens,they utilized eight aperture blades.As a nod to this timeless creation and in always seeking what many call thebest, we’re forever on a mission to Seek Eight.
