Aperture

In photography, the small opening through which light travels to strike the film or sensor to create an image. Combined with the shutter speed and ISO, the aperture has an effect on the correct exposure of a photograph. The aperture is measured by the relative width of the opening, or f-number, and has a principle role in determining the depth of field.
