This is a great video. Finally someone who explains things in common language instead of photo-lingo.

PhotographersOnUTube says:

Andy, watch my video Manual vs Aperture mode. I explained in detail the difference.

andywatkins90 says:

Good video. My question, what is the advantage or why would you pick manual settings over say on a canon AV setting? Is it just for more experienced photographers?

I just got a Canon T3 and it’s fantastic. If you have more money then I did, I recommend the Canon T3i, or the Nikon D3100, D3200 or the D5100.. All great cameras for the price.

oscarrggh says:

Hi, thanks for your really simple guide on Aperture. One question, I am using Canon 550D right now, and there is no such f stops 2.8. I do always try to minimize the stops, but it is only f stops 3.5 max. Cannot lower than that. Would you please explain that to me? Thanks.

Ceren Beder says:

when I control the aperture as in when i put it down to the lowest, the shutter speed increases so it takes longer for the photo to be taken and so the whole image is blurry, how do I stop this from happening? is it down to the lens I’m using?

ranchgoddess says:

I FINALLY GOT IT!!! I’ve seen many tutorials on F stops and your’s I completely understood!! Thanks so much!! I can’t wait to see the rest of your’s! My Nikon D5100 is coming in a couple of days and I just want to break into the UPS place and get it NOW!! Thanks again!!

Makaveli pac says:

should i buy d5100 or t4i im new and it is my first camera so … i dont know but i want it for stll photos more than videos …. plz help

PhotographersOnUTube says:

Sorry but it’s not a good idea to make a 30 minute FIRST lesson video and cream 10 things in there. That’s where most teachers lose the audience by going off track. Baby steps are important in teaching specially on a beginner level. There is already a very in depth tutorial on depth of field.

ryan hara Permana says:

I think you have to relate the apperture to dof to give the clear reason why the pepsi bottle be blur.thanks

mgiametta says:

Great information!



Douglas De Ford says:

Peachy9400 says:
