About This Class

By comparing the human eye to a camera I will help you understand what f-stops are in a simple easy to understand way. You will learn how to use f-stops correctly. How to decide which f-stop to use for different lighting conditions, and which f-stop to use to create crystal clear images or beautiful blurry backgrounds and foregrounds aka 'bokeh'. You will never be baffled by the f-stop again. I promise!!
