Oh me, oh my this has utterly befuddled Yours Truly and am relegating Mrs Carmichael to Photography minus 101.
I thought I understood the 101 explanation of aperture and have spent the last 24hours squinting like a good’un. I have got my fully manual Canon camera out, dusted off and have now run the battery down trying to change the f-stop settings – nada, hopeless, need classes immediately.
My self esteem is bleached white and vanishing with the stain remover.
Here are two photos which I think show a difference in focus. And yes, I did take them but with no control and I don’t understand why the f-stops appear to contradict focus 101′s key teaching points.
If anyone has the answer please pass it on. I will attempt to learn from a prone position in my darkened room.
Followed by one I feel more like jumping into than discussing my lack of understanding of focus.
I was going to write about gorse in New Zealand and Wales but I’m way too exhausted.
