    woah, been away from checking the forum for awhile and there's so many replies.

    Thanks for taking the time and patience for typing out the explanations rainman & zoossh. Im gonna get my hands on the understanding exposure by Bryan Peterson next week and also spend more time shooting to get a clearer picture of what u guys have explained.

    i think i failed my explaination again.... what i mean is not "when the aperture opening size area is decreased by n times (linearly 1, 2, 3, 4, 5....)" but "when the aperture opening size area is halved by n times (linearly 1, 2, 3, 4, 5....)". the linearity refers to the no. of times it is halved, like half once, half twice etc....



    i like this article especially...
