Yes of course you can blow out the background if you just have enough distance between the subject and said background. But what you need to consider also is that 35mm will distort your subject quite heavily. It might not be apparent here, but if that was a face, then it would be. If you had a f/1.8 lens, that background could be quite soft.


Quite true. The distortion is what needs to be dealt with ;) So... at some point, the face will be safe from distortion. The thing is, the background then needs to go further away. And there's the perspective thing, the frame widening too much... We'll see. It's an interesting case to play with. I am not saying I would normally prefer a wide-angle to a good zoom lens.

Have a good week and lots of inspiration!

85mm, f/1.8, prime lens, done deal. Science.
