The particular optical characteristics of telephoto lenses mean they can offer a very shallow depth of field. Elements like subject matter, movement, camera-to-subject distance, you chosen focal length, the aperture or f number, format size and the so-called ‘circle of confusion’ also influence when shallow focus becomes more noticeable. But the important idea here is that you can use shallow depth of field to focus the attention of the viewer on to a particular element in your image by blurring both foreground and background elements in a composition. It’s a great creative option when you switch to telephoto.
