    i do it for several reason,

    1. i like to shoot mainly natural light
    2. i like to shoot in locations that often don't have the best amount of light
    3. my camera is old so high ISOs are nasty
    4. shooting people at over 1/30th of a second is usually tough

    Spotlights the subject
    Makes subject appear sharper
    Blur out shitty background
    Low light

    Your rant would carry some weight if you posted some shots that you think should not have shallow DOF.

    I shoot a lot of outdoor portraits wide open to isolate my subject from the background. for still life it's an "artistic" thing, some shots just look better with a very shallow DoF

    :o

    :rofl:

    At least Simon Cudby knew what he was doing. ;)

    I think a lot of people shoot wide open because they can, and the shallow DOF doesnt help the photo at all.

    One thing I've told myself and proved myself wrong over and over is... "The lens CAN be wide open, why wouldn't open it up?"

    Shallow DOF isn't always the best for most pics like you mentioned. But in low lights, it helps. Also, w/ babies that move a lot since it bumps your shutters higher to 'freeze' their motion. :o

    I always open her up and drop iso to lowest to reduce noise and allow for fastest shutter speed possible.
