Perfect exposure is made up of a balance of Shutter Speed, ISO, and Aperture.
Aperture determines how much light is let into the camera. To create truly stunning images where the subject is in focus and the 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 one of the lowest effective apertures. In creating this highly sought-after lens, they utilized eight aperture blades. As a nod to this timeless creation, and as we seek perfect exposure, we’re forever on a mission to Seek Eight.
