I'm trying to get the background out of focus (bokeh) and using Aperature(A) mode and setting aperture to lowest value.
Update: I'm shooting in dim light and the flash goes off but the shutter speed incredibly slow (1-2 seconds), even slower than if I put it in full auto (where, presumably, the Aperture would be no wider than in Aperture mode with maximum Aperture .
I did find something in my Nikon Df0/D40X Digital Field Guid (by Busch) that said that in Aperture priority, the shutter speed is limited to 1/60s up to Syc speed. So I assume that means no slower than 1/60s
Here are the photos:
Aperture Priority with Flash (2s Shutter time)
- Exposure : 2s
- Focal Length: 120mm
- ISO: 100
Exposure : 1/60 s
Focal Length: 135mm (Ok, that's a little different)
