ways to affect lighting in (digital) photography

my camera is a nikon d80. i've been messing around with a lot of different functions and i've compiled a list of things i have found that affect the lighting and look of a photograph:
1. iso value
2. flash, flash strength, type of flash (normal, slow, rear)
3. white balance
4. aperture
5. shutter speed
6. exposure compensation
7. distance between the camera and the subject
8. available light outside of the camera
9. subject motion speed

vignette - a cool word

define:vignette - Google Search
A vignette is an image that does not have a definite border around it

how can a circumference be pi?

on the wikipedia page for pi it says "When a circle's diameter is 1, its circumference is π"
but if pi's decimal form "never ends or repeats", how can it be a circumference of a circle? a circle has a definite circumference length.
