In general when you are taking portraits you want a small amount of DOF (small F stop number). You want your subject to be in good focus and the background to be blurred. When you are taking landscape pictures you want a larger amount of DOF (Large F stop number). Whenever you want to control the depth-of-field, Aperture Priority mode should be your first choice!

other sizes: small medium original
