Av actually means aperture priority mode. It's the setting to adjust how wide your aperture is. The higher the number, the smaller the hole that the light goes through. The smaller the number, the bigger the hole. It's a lot harder to focus with the lower aperture setting (like around 2.8), but it's a great way to get pics in low light.

The autofocus setting is in the lens, not on the camera.

Hope I didn't confuse anyone with all that. LOL! I was a pro portrait photog for a while, so send any questions my way if you have them.

right, but in simple terms, its just the clarity of the background. which like i said determines whether the foreground is more focused or the background

Yeppers! Makes for much prettier pictures when the background is blurry. Less distraction and more focus on the pretty dogs!

On a side note, my dog hates my camera. She doesn't like being the subject at all. Haha!

roman is ok with it as long as he's distracted by other things lol. i've already starting looking for a tripod and other lenses. i have the 18-55mm and the 75-300. but i'd like a wide angle and a macro lense. of course i'd also like a supertelephoto but that aint gonna happen anytime soon. lol
