Submission deadline has past

Description

Using a shallow depth of field is a good way to make your subject stand out from its background and is great for portrait photography. 

In this challenge, utilize the the three factors of controlling depth of field - distance from subject, lens length, and apeture size - to create an amazing photo letting the subect stand out and push that background into the blur.
