I am easily able to get a shallow depth of field when I am close to my subject. However, when I am farther away, I cannot seem to get a shallow DOF. Let's say you have someone standing in the middle of a field and you want to get a shot of their entire body, but want the background blurred? I can't manage to capture that.

I want to make a lens upgrade, and I'm having a hard time with these two factors.
The image sharpness of the Prime lenses are better, but the flexibility of a zoom is unbeatable. If you have any input to throw on the table please share.
