    Profile pictures in low light

    My first attempt at this post failed to get posted properly for some reason (despite "draft saved"). I have a D500 with a 14-24mm f/2.8 and an SB-700 in TTL mode and trying to figure out the best way to navigate environments with very low light. This picture was taken in manual at f/4 ISO 1250...

    Golden Grasses

    Taken shortly after sunrise on a fall morning in the mountain. I purposely played around with DoF to try and get one or two of the grasses tack sharp and the rest of the scene faded.. Shot on D850 w/ 24-70 2.8 @ f/4. Processed and cropped in LR/PS.

    Depth of field calcuations with a D500 and 24-70mm

There is...

    Same DOF with different lenses?

    Is it possible to get the same depth of field with different lens? Let say If I want to get as shallow DOF as a 50mm can do at f1.8, but I only have a 24-105mm f4, so I zoom in to 105mm @ f4, will the DOF be the same like the 50mm @ f1.8? There might be a perspective compression difference but...
