I rhapsodize in Chapter 1 about how brilliantly digital SLRs can ignore noise, chiefly because of their large pixels. Still, remember that any digital camera is subject to this curse when you raise the ISO enough or take pictures with a long-enough exposure. Digital cameras can remove much of the noise caused by long exposures by taking a second, blank frame after exposing the first picture and then comparing the two.

The size of the lens opening (the f/stop or aperture) used to take the picture Larger f/stops (smaller numbers), such as f/2 or f/4, produce less depth-of-field than smaller f/stops (larger numbers), such as f/11 or f/16. Remember: The size of the numbers is reversed because apertures are actually the denominators of fractions, so ½ and ¼ are larger than 1∕ 11 or 1∕ 16.
