    I'm not quite sure how I would know that whether I not I have a small enough aperture for them to both be sharp?
    If you have a lot of light it's fine because you can just put a small aperture, but if it's dark then it becomes a balancing act of cranking the ISO hi enough to get the shot, and the aperture just small enough to get the depth of field I guess? Too small an aperture means a higher ISO and more grain.

    How does one know how small an aperture is needed?

    Trial and error and keep inspecting on the screen on the back of the camera?

    Just shoot with losts of combinations of ISO / aperture and look on a big screen when you get home?

    You can use a 'preview button' that you can custom set in the menu to check DoF. I think you can see DoF when using 'live view' as well.
    Google "Depth of Field Tables."

    They're alligators, crocs have a pointed snoot.
