Depth of Field

After I picked up my first prime lens, I have really enjoyed taking pictures with a shallow depth of field. Scientific studies have shown that the human brain is adept at "completing" the picture when details are shallow or missing. Pictures with shallow depth of field also allow you to draw the attention of the eyes on what to focus on. To demonstrate, see the details of the paper fan details gradually melt away (Photo taken with a 50mm F1.8).
