What's an aperture??? Basically looking at your lens, there is an opening there that gets bigger or smaller...the larger the hole opening the more light that is let in and vice versa to the smaller the hole it restricts the amount coming in. This number is called you f/stop. An effect of the hold size also controls the amount of image in focus (this is referred to as "depth of field" by photographers). The larger the hole, the less will be in focus and the smaller the hole more to be in focus.
Now that you know this you can try putting your camera in "A" (aperture mode) and play with taking the same picture controlling the f/stop number and seeing the difference that can make!!!
