Using longer lenses augments the effect greatly too. (ie: zooming in)
Also, if your camera has a built in ND filter, you can use it to open up the iris in brighter situations.
If it doesn’t have an ND filter, you can buy one that attaches to the lens.
And last but not least, you can always speed up the shutter speed to counter-act the wider iris. (Though it may produce slightly choppier video)
I love having a narrower depth of field. It looks so much more cinematic.
