    And the best part is you could see it all coming anyway. Lack of depth, lack of critical thinking, indications of shallow pursuits (no pun intended). Prophecy fulfilled. Sigh, youth of today.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    I think you will find that top pro photographers do in fact use shallow depth of field a lot, presumeably that's what sells clothes in non-studio settings.

    I agree, I use the old f2 on my 105 all the time.
    She just thought that was the only way to photograph.
    She couldn't understand why I stopped the Hasselblad down to F8 in the studio, and thought that f2.8 plannar was worthless.

    Cain't do nuthin' bout thems whats thinks they knows.

    BTW, "bohka" is the spelling in India.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Back in the 90s, 50 1.8s and 50 1.4s were the kit lenses. They were on the camera because they were cheap

    Now everyone fawns over them like its the second coming of Jesus
    I used a 50 1.4 wide open for my Junior High photos of all my friends because it was too dark in the cafeteria and classrooms for anything slower

    I wish I could have closed down for some of the group shots

    I really dislike the 'everything wide open' crap that's going around. It's just silly.

    And all the terminology that goes with it makes it so that I cringe when I hear someone talk about it.

    Swirly bokeh takes the medal for the one that actually makes me physically sick...

    Not using depth of field as something creative, as well as a control, is a bit of a mystery to me.

    Also, Bokeh is to photographers as Wabi is to watch collectors

    No it is logical. If it is crap, the less you see the better.
