ISO is your camera’s sensitivity to light as it pertains to either film or a digital sensor. A lower ISO value means less sensitivity to light, while a higher ISO means more sensitivity. I think in the beginning I would set it in the AUTO mode.

 Aperture can be defined as the opening in a lens through which light passes to enter the camera. The f-numbers like f/1.4, f/2, f/2.8 and so tells us what the size of the lens opening, which can be controlled through the lens or the camera.I think for my use I most of time will use less light for better focused images.
