I'm new to DSLR photography, but have been snapping pictures with a pocket camera for years. I have a 50mm f/1.8 prime lens on my D200, and it takes photos with beautiful bokeh. But I feel like I'm overlooking something by not using the depth of field preview button on the camera. I have read about this button online, but can't quite wrap my head around what exactly it is supposed to do. Or perhaps it's working just fine, and I don't actually understand it.

Anyway, I apologize if this sounds like a dumb question but I'm hoping someone could explain it in simple terms :)

Thank you!
