This is a blog for Rocky Mountain College's Digital Nature Photography course, taught by Dave Shumway. The title is a shout-out to the way photography is viewed in popular culture, as a fine art. I often hear that photography isn't in the same ball park as painting, especially now that so many people have cameras on their phones. It's easy to say "Oh yeah I'm in to photography." It's another thing to actually understand it as a true art form.

Depth of Field, Aperture Settings
OK, so here are my two examples for low aperture and a higher aperture...
The first was at a low aperture, giving me a smaller depth of field to work with. Which worked great for sneaking up on Sorcha and surprising her with this shot! 1-60 sec @ f/6.3 , ISO 125
The next was set at a higher aperture to give me a larger depth of field. This worked great because my professor was sitting far from me at the time while I waited to see what he and the cat would do.
