Question by Lidiya: Question about camera aperture.?
Hello photographers. I am a novice at photography, and I have problems with my aperture mode on the camera. I have Nikon D7000 that someone gave me as a gift. I understand what aperture is, and what the depth of field is, but for some reason I cannot put this knowledge into practice.
Whenever I go out to shoot landscape and the pictures alike, I like to choose the aperture mode to be able to bring everything in focus. However, no matter what I try, all the pics come out really dark. Whenever I try to shoot portraits and go the other way, all the pictures come out dark too. On the Manual mode, where I can control the shutter speed too, everything comes out ok. And it just bugs me: if I can figure out Manual mode, why can’t I figure the half-automatic Aperture mode?
The only other thing I am able to control in aperture mode is ISO, but it does not bring much difference either.
Do you guys think there is a problem with the camera, glass, or just me. How can I fix this problem. I already tried to reset everything — doesn’t hep.

This will teach you how to balance the ISO, shutter speed and lens aperture
You do this using the camera in the manual mode until you get the hang of it.
Then when you pick an aperture in the aperture priority mode, you will have a good idea what the depth of field will be
