I’ve explained this so many times over, and every time it’s for the same reason: people dive into technical stuff way too early on and get confused to the point of quitting. It’s hard for somebody who doesn’t do well with electronics to understand sensor sensitivity or how the lens opening affects the depth of field. That is understandable because most of us are artists not professors in physics, after all.
Okay this one’s going to a bit messy, and it’s highly recommended that you do not try this at home without safety glasses and other protective gear.

Most of us photographers strive for faster and faster lens, mostly in order to have cleaner images. Faster lens also means more bokeh. And I don’t know a portrait photographer who doesn’t love bokeh.
“The Farmers” started out as a simple vision for a fine art portrait series featuring agriculturalists. Stableford imagined producing large format canvas prints and holding a gallery opening bash, inviting all those who helped him along the way, as well as their friends, families, and neighbors. However, over the course of the four months that it took Stableford and his team to craft 45 amazing images for the gallery showing, Stableford began to see the larger picture.
