Thanks, yes some of that makes a lot more sense.....
If you have a big apperture setting (Very low F number i.e. 5, 6, 7 etc) you will be able to use a faster shutter speed (speed at which the photo is 'taken'). This is because the larger 'hole' is letting in more light so it can record the image faster. HOWEVER a large apperture will usually give you a blurred background because the camera doesn't have the time to record background details so it jst gets a few colours and light levels but not detailed stuff.
as i read it (had to a good few times) low F = Big hole and blury background?
i like the fotos...yes i can see the difference, and as you try to explain on each one, that does help....
I saw some fotos of fast racing cars............very sharp but blury background, and the text said they followed the car by moving.....(instead of a shot where everything is instant, so looks like car is motionless)
i thank you very much for your time and effort to expain. i so want to be able to use my camera not just on auto :-)
PS, love your dog...........
fotos taken today of dog, cat, models of plane n tanks etc
