|low aperture = clear close-up of subject and blurred background|

I'm so glad that Cyrus is patient (sort of), laid-back (most of the time), and doesn't mind me constantly sticking a camera in his face. I've been playing with the camera lately and trying to understand it more. I'm trying to only use manual settings and I think I finally am beginning to understand aperture. Hallelujah! I've read books and articles and manuals and it just wouldn't click (pun intended). It's FINALLY clicking now and so I've been doing a lot of practicing on Cyrus. I'm glad he's always nearby and ready and willing to be my test subject. Well...as long as he gets a treat at some point. Soon, I'll be ready to move onto setting both shutter speed and aperture for fast-moving action shots. Wish me luck.
