The largest aperture which is the smallest number on the aperture ring/dial generally anything between f1.2 - f5.6 dependant on the lens and zoom. On most consumer digital cameras the more you zoom in the higher the smallest aperture becomes. eg. Lens at 35mm, widest aperture (shallowest depth of field) generally about f2.8 Zoom in and the largest aperture will reduce to about f5.6

Aperture priority lets you set the aperture you want and the camera sets the shutter speed for you. You use it when you want to control depth of field. Shutter priority lets you set the shutter speed you want and the camera sets the aperture for you. You use it when you want to control how motion is rendered in the photograph.

Explain the application of aperture in relationship to shallow and large depth of field. Use diagram or illustration to assist you in you explanation?

When a small aperture setting is used, such as f/11, a large depth of field will be achieved. One would use this, say, if they wanted to take a landscape photograph, and have most of the photo in focus. When a medium aperture setting is used, such as f/4, less of the photograph will be in focus, but not as much as if one were to use an aperture setting of f/1.8. A medium setting like f/4 could be used for a group photo. When a large aperture setting is used, such as f/1.8, a very small slice of the photograph will be in focus (shallow DOF.) This large aperture setting could be used for plant photography, macro photography, insect photography, etc.

What does F1.7 mean in photography?

The f-number is indicative of aperture. The smaller the number, the larger the aperture is, and the more light is let in. The Depth-of-Field is also reduced with a smaller f-number. f/1.7 is a very large aperture, and there will be little depth of field, but lots of brightness.
