      Thanks Cjoe..I thought about openeing the aperature to 2 or 3 but didn't want to lose to much focus specifically the edges of the shadows tried to keep the shadows crisp. specifically because my fucus is center weighted. But, I do not experiment much with ISO setting. Any input about the relation between ISO setting and Aperature would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Again for the comment.

        the aperture and ISO aren't really related, but heres my explaination on ISO settings:
        (i was explaining to someone else but it may be relevant to you)

        The graininess of the shots depend on the ISO, if you used ISO 1600 in the daytime, then they would be grainy. A higher ISO number produces inherently grainier images, but it is more sensitive to light, thats why you use a high ISO at night because you don't have to use huge apertures and (what seem like) eternal shutter speeds. If you used 1600 in the daytime when ISO 100 would be perfectly acceptable you would have to change your exposure by 5 stops.

        E.g.

        say these are the correct exposure settings for an ISO 100 film in daylight at noon. 250th @ f5.6
        For an ISO 1600 film the correct exposure would be 8000th @ f5.6 or 2000th @ f1.8.

        say these are the correct settings for a full moon with 100 ISO film: 4sec @ f1.8. You can reduce your need for a slow shutter by using 1600 ISO. Then the settings would be 8th @ f1.8, thus reducing the risk of camera shake.

        So basically higher ISO = higher sensitivity to light BUT grainier image.
        visa versa.

        Thats why in studios they use very slow film, 1. because they have excellent lighting 2. It produces a very finely detailed (non grainy) image.
        And why sports photographers may use an ISO 800 film because they are using fast shutter speeds (two reasons: long focus lenses and the ability to freeze movement) and usually smaller apertures (usually because the lens diameter is so large its hard to make a fast lens with a big diameter).

        Hope that helps.

            Thanks cjoe I will be trying some of your pointers in the future. Unfortunatley my cameras manual settings are not affording me all the functionality I would like. I really need to upgrade to SLR maybe after the new year. My Mother in law just got the 8mp e-volt its pretty sweet. I am envious. unfortunately she will probably never even use the manual setting and shoot on A. That shutters my bug!! *^(*)&^&*)%^&$^%$^%&^%

              just to clarify...you don't have to only represent feelings and emotion through colour, just use colour to express yourself!

                  flash used Tv-0.017sec Av-f/4 iso-100

                  just experimenting...
                  this is what i reckon my dog sees... he's fully blind in one eye, partially blind and very bloodshot in the other...
                  i took a pic with a fish-eye lens and used a flash with a red sweet wrapper taped to the front of it...
                  The beginning is always today.

                    this picture i took on the summer solstice this year

                    I know its not under the specifications for the project but i had to share it. Photography is my second passion next to graphic design. They are shown in the progression of the sunset.

                    Minolta Dimage Z5, 1/60 sec., f/3.5, ISO 50
                    1/40 sec.
                    1/50 sec, f/2.8
                    Hope you like.

                        Thanks Tyger,

                        I felt really lucky, i had just bought my Minolta that day and was testing the camera out when suddenly i look out side and there it was.

                                  To expand a little on what B said. Those monograms were hand created. They weren't just a font, and there's no software that will automatically squeeze them into a shape like that....

                                  Not sure where you got those sizes. I would try this always up to date google doc with various social media pixel sizes.
