thanks all. This is probably a noob question but why a lower f as opposed to a higher? I wanted the entire flower in focus and i was really close, so i figured i needed a larger DOF ~ a higher F. Can you help me understand that? Thanks!
At a lower fstop light travels faster to the plain because you're taking more in.
The result is a faster capture. Negates motion blur. Think of it as a balancing act.
Think of it as a funnel.
You pour oil into your cars motor thru a funnel, but the spout at the other end is so small you have to stop pouring or it will over flow at the pouring side. Why? Because the aperture at the " pour" side is much larger than the delivery side.
Keep this in mind as you progress.
Is this real? Never thought of this, hehe.
