i am actually a little confused. Ive heard that for macro shots, i should use small f-values, like f-2. However, i do see ppl saying that we should use larger f-values instead, like f10 or 12. So what is right? Let say i want to achieve a shallow DOF with the background blur and subject in focus.
Similarly, for landscape shots, i should use a larger f-value like f12. Right?
Btw, i am using a al-cheapo A40.
Thank you for helping me out!
