. A good thing about LF photography is the ease in creating this effect due to the long focus lenses involved. Funny how the shallow DOF is being re-discovered these days, almost forgotten in the clamour to buy zoom lenses. I have had a couple of digital shooters that have never seen through a fast prime, and are amazed when they do.
I have a book printed in the 1940s where the authors bemoan the huge DOF of the "miniature" format (meaning the 35mm).
One wonders what they would have made of the DOF of the digicam?
