Question Part #4 - How Important Is...

I would like to know other forum members opinions in relation to how important it is to have a sufficient understanding of Depth Of Field (DOF) in todays photography considering that many people (myself included) seem to be moving away from film to digital photography and digital photography seems to be a lot easier as far as not needing to know all of the rules?

I grew up with an understanding of things like Depth Of Field (DOF), Shutter Speed, Aperture, ISO/ASA, Exposure, Color temperature, the rule of thirds, reciprocity failure etc...

Is information like that mentioned still relevant to todays photographer?

NOTE: I will repeat this question on a number of topics in different posts as I am interested in your opinions...

Thanks for reading.

regards

Re: Part #4 - How Important Is...

Yes it is. Unless you have a dslr that can do automatic, it wouldn't have to be. But without that knowledge, I wouldn't be able to do photography.
