f-stop, an abbreviation for a camera lens aperture setting that corresponds to an f-number, which is the ratio of the focal length of a lens to the effective diameter of its aperture.


It’s almost the end of May, school about to wrap up, summer getting to ready to spread its wings. We encourage all our readers, whether amateur or professional, locals or newcomers, to submit their very best photographs to our weekly f-stop Franklin page, so we can showcase the creative power of the camera. We especially like pictures of people, but photos can be of any subject, interesting places, scenery, unusual objects, anything that strikes your fancy.


Please send photographs to David Adlerstein at Dadlerstein@starfl.com. For more information, call 653-8894.
