Today, I decided to start messing with semi-manual settings.  I used this article on understanding aperture.

This picture uses an f-stop of 13, a 1.3 second shutter speed and an ISO of 800.  I manually focused this one and had the camera resting on a stationary object.

This picture has an f-stop of 5.6 with a shutter speed of 1/25 of a second and an ISO of 800.  It was on automatic focus and still resting on that stationary object.

I finally have a grasp on how to create different depths of field.  Maybe I should have played with the manual settings back when I took that photography studio in college.

And thanks to this gal for leading me to the tutorial website.
