No! NOT a shorter focal length. Least Depth of Field occurs at longest focal length...

ISO is only incidentally involved. For best image quality you should always use the lowest ISO you can get away with in the lighting conditions prevailng.

greater background separation and obviously a large aperture to achieve a narrow depth of field. I am also understanding that I am able to manipulate an image based on my lens through focal length and iso to achieve a good blurry background effect.

Ok understood. I am looking forward to the weekend to take some pics and post the and get some feedback.
