New to this website, I am also relearning photography from back in my college days shooting film. Could you do a seg. on depth of field or if you have one, shoot me the tag so I may watch it. Thanks for this one though, it brought back alot of what I had forgotten.

I have heard people trying to explain aperture to me a number of times without success. This is the first explanation I have heard that actually conveys what the setting means and what I really need to know in order to understand. I will be watching this again and again until I have the details committed to memory.

I am with you on that one. Today's oldies whinge and moan about "trendy" teaching methods, but I can tell you this much: at least today's teachers acknowledge that not everyone in their class is going to be or aspires to be a theoretical physicist.

And honestly, the math used in this vid at was at least explained in a manner that was followable and used the right props to make all types understand. Total contrast from the "x times y is what?" over and over method that the oldies mentioned above think everyone should be subjected to.
