A few articles I'd like to share concerning the overuse and misuse of shallow depth of field. This horrendous look is on the rise everyday thanks to the wonderful world of DSLR cinematography. The quest for the most shallow depth of field is absolutely ridiculous. The biggest gimmick ever!!!!!! Sorry people but shallow DOF has been around forever. Fact of the matter is, its sole purpose is to attract your eye to the subject and greatly emphasize it... but it's not for use in EVERY SINGLE SHOT.
