    Mr.Bennet, I found your video instruction on photography DOF and aperture adjustment

    (f stops), very valuable. I appreciate that your explanation was put into a nutshell! In addition,

    the diagrams you drew during your lesson were easy to follow and fully supported your

    information. You made it short and informational and got to the point.

    I look forward to more of your videos.Thank you. RW Lujan – rwlujan@gmail.com
