Aperture is measure with F/Numbers also known as F/Stops. It is written as f/1.4, f/2, f/2.8, f/4, f/5.6 and so on.

Chapter 2: What Is Shutter Speed? – The Ultimate Beginners Photography Guide

In photography, shutter speed or exposure time is the length of time when the film or digital sensor inside the camera is exposed to light, also when a camera’s shutter is open when taking a photograph. The amount of light that reaches the film or image sensor is proportional to the exposure time. In simple words, Shutter speed is the length of time the camera shutter is open, exposing light onto the camera sensor. What I mean by this is that it is a duration of time your camera spends taking a photograph. Continue reading Chapter 2: What Is Shutter Speed? – The Ultimate Beginners Photography Guide
