Bob, yes i am getting a REALLY good feel for AV mode.
Learning what aperture will fit with the shot.(like the mug one. i didn't want the background so blurry you can't really tell its muffins, but not so clear the main focus is taken away from the mug.) Also, i'm unable(literrally) to download those programs onto my current computer. Though i should be receving my macbookpro here shortly. yayness.
Luce, thank you!I didn't even think about using candles! I will deff try different things with them! I'm not sure how one should "play with lighting", so i guess i'll learn that!
As Bob said, my tri-pod should be arriving Wednesday(tomorrow!). Once that arrives i'll deff have some real fun!(the camera shake was quite annoying wtih the smaller apertures.)
Once i have more shape shots and some outdoor ones, i'll be sure to post them!!(really hoping i can get some good stuff this week. its a busy one)
thanx, Bob, for giving me this assignment!
it has helped a lot.
EDIT: and i'll be sure to write down my settings!
