    Depth of field is the area in front of the pictures subject and behind the pictures subject that is in focus. This image was taken using a Nikon 50mm lens with aperture set at 1.8 giving a very shallow depth of field.

    It's ok if you can't understand it.

    I was simply trying to explain "shallow depth of field" to people who may have wondered what it meant. Go troll somewhere else.

    I noticed you posted a picture of cat food. Do you know the reason why cats have whiskers? Because they have a hard time seeing things that are closer than 6 inches to their face, and the whiskers help them navigate around.

    If the whiskers get through, the cat gets through.

    Yeah, on occasion, I like to watch Animal Planet. Did you know that cats have 32 separate muscles in each ear so that they can rotate them and use their ears like a directional microphone?

    I knew a cat can move its ears but didnĀ“t know there are 32 muscle. I was responsible for our cats back then.
