What do you say in English when you change the aperture to a lower number/larger aperture. Stop up? (sounds strange to the ear)

I agree with Roy, going to a smaller aperture is "stopping down" but going with a wider aperture is "opening up". I am sure that the term "stopping up" is used somewhere however, we have seen many examples of the vagaries of the English language.
