    Aperture is more than that. You would be well-served by reading Understanding Exposure, by Bryan Peterson.

    Thanks! I searched on Google play and looks like they have 3rd and 4th edition. I will get one and read it.

    Get a depth of field calculator app for your phone and see what distance is going to be in focus. Understanding depth of field may answer your original problem of trying to get everything in focus. It will compliment the book above.

    Well I sent my camera off to canon last week. Just got it back about an hour ago. I am very happy with it! They said the AF assembly was out of position. They adjusted the af assembly and replaced the focus screen. Will try to post pics later! I have also read Understanding Exposure and am halfway through Understanding Composition. Thanks everyone for the help!

    I went out this morning and took some pics. It was 20 degrees outside and foggy by the river. I'm having a hard time finding things to photograph. Everything is so dull this time of the year. Anyway, I thought I would share some of the pics I took this morning.
