I don't share your optimism that just shooting close with a WA lens gives your subjects proper isolation.   Here I'm talking about my own WA shooting.  I've come to realize that it is pretty much all telephoto shots, but shot closer.  By this I mean that the subject is parallel to the camera and the WA's ability to create perspective is underutilized.

Only in the last week have I taken satisfactory true WA shots, and they are few.

A photo is 2 dimensional, and I do not think you should rest satisfied with the lack of separation in your shots.
