Thank you so much, Katy!!! ... You have no idea how much help that kind of tutorial will be for those of us, who would love to explore the beautiful world of photography, (have an SLR camera collecting dust ), but due to lack of basic "generic" equipment knowledge (because I imagine that most SLR cameras operate somewhat the same, mine is a Nikon D90, FYI ), we just get intimidated and move away from it!
So, I'll be looking forward to it, Katy!!!
Ohh and ...no need to dedicate the tutorial to me ... I'll just know!
I would really like a tutorial, or pictorial explanation, as to how different focal lengths of lenses can affect things like background blurriness with the same aperture, field of view with the body of the camera at the same spot, and the body of the camera moved so that one particular subject in focus always fills the same portion of the screen.
Not sure if i explained myself well enough - but I've found I need to see something like this, especially when trying to choose a macro lens when I can't try them all! For example whether a 60mm or a 90mm actually gives you more working distance, the field of view of each one and when filling the same portion of the screen and with same aperture how much the background is blurred etc... oh, and how much better/worse bokeh is with different lenses.
Requires someone with a LOT of equipment (which isn't me )
