For full explorations into shallow depths of field, you need a lens with a bright maximum aperture, such as this Nikon 58mm f1.4 lens. This large aperture of this lens is perfect for throwing backgrounds into a complete blur, while these blurry areas, or bokeh, are of the most beautiful and dream-like in quality, thanks to the 9 rounded-blade aperture diaphragm. As for the focal length, 58mm finds the middle ground between standard and telephoto, which is ideal for creating a natural perspective and is perfect for documentary-style shooting and for portraiture. When mounted on DX-format cameras this focal length translates to an equivalent of 87mm, which creates an even tighter crop and allows you to maintain a greater distance between you and your model.
Sharp from corner-to-corner, this Nikon 58mm lens includes Aspherical lens elements in its construction, which also leads to a decrease in aberrations and light falloff, problems that are common to lenses of a similar range. The large aperture which we have previously discussed means this lens can also be used to shoot in much darker conditions than you are probably used to. If you are up at dawn, or if you find yourself still out shooting after the sun goes down, open the aperture right up and explore the wonderful sights that the world has to offer, when the light is dim and picturesque.
