Very often these days I hear photographers asking rental companies for fast lenses because they want a very shallow depth of field.
At this point I usually walk to the other side of the room and do my best to not get involved.
As anyone that has been in photography knows a longer focal length is closer to what most renters are actually looking for rather than a lens that will work best in low light.
I just came across the video that should help explain what depth of field is and how it can be used.
It may take some people watching it a few times but in the end it will all make sense.
