Default why are my pics blurry?

I have been taking pictures at a few weddings and find that several of my pictures tend to look blurry. I am using auto to be safe (fujifilm s602 z) but would like to use manual settings. I am having a hard time understanding the relationship between aperture/fstop ???? any good sites or online courses that would explain these to me?

Best bet...go to the library or bookstore and pick up a copy of basic photography.

Blurry pictures are generally the result of camera shake caused by slow shutter speeds.

... caused by slow shutter speeds which often result from too large an aperture (too small a number).

Klaus posts on this forum and he has a great web site :

http://www.hertz-ladiges.com/eng/indexeng.html

You will learn a lot from his web site and he will critique your photos.

I also recommend a book by Bahman Farzad: " Confused Photographer's Guide to Photographic Exposure & the Simplified Zone System"

It will be at your local book store or on line at:

oops... strike that.. reverse it... Large aperture, small number like 2.8 let's in more light (faster shutter speed) than small aperture, bigger number like 5.6 or 8, which lets in less light which means slower shutter speeds..
