Using aperture to isolate a subject is the oldest trick in the book. Small aperture, with subject closer to the camera than the background, works every time. But the quality of that background, the amount of defocusing, blurring etc. is dependant on the size of the Fstop we choose to use. Would the shot be better at F5.6 than F2.8? Looking at the back of the camera or through the EVF of a mirrorless camera doesn’t always help. Back home in front the computer there are only a limited number of things you can do to optimize the background. I often take numerous photos at different depths of field and I am often surprised what I find to have been the best aperture.
