I remember reading some place that a shallow DOF is achieved by using a small f-stop, a large focal length and getting really close to the subject.
Is this correct? Can someone give a few examples of achieving a good DOF in practice?
Usually the shallowest possible DOF seems to be what a lot of people seem to wish for, but that would be like asking for power for the sake of power rather than exercising it wisely. Hence my request of examples and tips from more experienced folks.
