Achieve sharp focus and create impact with out of focus backgrounds

This image, shot at f/8, shows the face in focus as well as more details are visible in the background.
By f/4 the background is nicely soft, similar to a standard zoom lens.
At maximum aperture of f/1.8, the subject really stands out against a very soft background.
