Eyewitness: Gold Coast, Australia Pro tip A fast shutter speed (1/4000) traps the motion of the powder and a short telephoto lens (125mm) compresses the detail of the scene, making for an intense and vivid image.

Ahahahahahahaha! @Tapsamai Yes, I meant that larger aperture (smaller F-stop number) and closer focusing distances produce a shallower depth of field. :D
@yinofyang thank you for your explanation, it works exactly as you said. However, when you said larger aperture, it does not mean that you get shallower depth of field. It actually larger aperture, would give you more depth of field ;) I used my 1.4 F lens, and I always take photo as 1.4 large aperture.
@sofiamuller758 It's true that the faster the shutter speed, the less light comes in. But, you can work on increasing the ISO of your camera (although as you know, higher ISO means more grain) and shooting with a larger aperture, though that means that you do get shallower depth of field.
So if the shutter speed is fast, there would be less light get into the lens, isnt it? So would it make the photo darker?
