I didn't tell you.
Santa bought me a big girl camera for Christmas.
AND OH! MY Gosh!
I love it.
It's so much fun playing with it and learning new things.
This week I am learning about the F- stop and what it means to my camera. Even though I don't really understand what it means. . . I understand how to make the back ground in my photos fuzzy . . .and really that's all I want. . . this week. I'll get the rest sooner or later. . . I hope.
So, what does F-stop mean??? Uhhh, well it has to do with aperture. So, the lower your f-stop number is the more out of focus your back ground becomes. I know that much is true. You should also have your camera set on aperture mode or A when you want this effect.
So, . . . I think all this means - the wider the eye of the lens opens - the lower the f-stop goes - meaning more light comes into the eye of the camera. Or all this might mean - the lower with the f-stop the less light goes in to the eye of the camera. . . Mmmm, I have to study it more. . .don't take my word for it.
You should look it up and tell me - as you can tell, I find it all very confusing.
I just know: I really, really LOVE the camera and I love the effect I get when the F-stop number is low.
