Recent article got me playing

Really liked the DIY article for start shooting. Soooo i tried it. This was at 21:30 so it was just about pitch black out .. except for some lights from neibhors.

My only issue is i cant seem to adjust teh F to lowest setting which should be 3.5 on the kit lens.

I was in Manual exposure priority mode. and the F was at 8. no matter what i did...........please tell me what is going on as i am bit confused.



Still came out pretty decent but not what i was shooting for...

You kit lens is a variable zoom.

That means max aperture (F value) is only F3.5 when lens is at 18mm. when zoomed to 55mm It's max aperture is F5.6

But Its strange the it wouldnt let you go below F8.

In manual mode, pressing the green button will toggle between Shutter speed and Aperture control. After "tabbing" to Aperture control you can decrease the F value to 3.5 by scrolling the E-dial.
