About Art David
– Passionate hobbyist photographer
– Started taking pictures for high school yearbook, then college newspaper

– Heavy-duty tripod
– DSLR (Nikon D800) and backup camera
– Took too many lenses.  Most used – 20-70mm zoom with filters and 16-25mm zoom (permanent shade doesn’t allow for easy filter attachment)

– Hyperfocal distance – focus on something about 1/3 distance into the scene, the depth of field will extend both in front of and behind your point of focus
– Focus Stacking – 3 pics of same area, focus one on foreground, one on middle ground, one on background – stack in Photoshop
– Bracketing – merge images to create pic with creative lighting
– Keep aperture small (f/8 or f/11)
– Find something visually interesting in all levels (foreground, middle, and background)
