comment Why can't I get a shallow depth of field (DOF) effect?
This is good advice, I often recompose a shot of my child so that the background is further away (if the shallow depth of field is what I'm going for).

comment Does a flash work well with regular alkaline batteries?
Having an SB-600, the information is pretty on par with my personal usage (attempting to take into account the fact that I rarely do a full pop).

By the way, the DOF still is rather thin - your background my not have the blur you want, but its still "clearly" out of focus.

comment What is Rembrandt lighting, and when do I use It?
These are great examples and inspired me to try a lighting on the background similarly. Thanks!

@Jay Lance Photography - Definitely easy, I wholeheartedly recommend to anybody to take 15 minutes and set it up if you're not familiar with this kind of stuff. Little things get learned every time you setup!

Ok, time to go try this. We'll see if I'm at least as smart as a sleeping, one armed monkey.

comment What is the “exposure triangle”?
This is where @mattdm shows up with his rant about exposure triangles and its better as a rectangular prism (which it really is)....photo.stackexchange.com/questions/5586/…

comment Should I buy this Nikon 50mm f/1.8?
@Tom - +1 !, additionally, its very, very difficult to keep focus on moving objects (even people walking around) at wide open, big apertures - the depth of field is razor thin

comment Should I buy this Nikon 50mm f/1.8?
@kacalapy - ok, once again, its not a "depth-of-field effect". Every shot has a certain DOF - the area that is acceptably in focus...you're talking about a shallow depth of field.
