Good morning you beautiful people! So, I posted a thread earlier on Lightroom but I wanted to separate my subjects in question. For you portrait professionals: What are some tips for getting those perfectly blurred backgrounds with a sharp subject such as the one pictured below? I'm not sure if it is a matter of DOF or changing my camera setting, or both. I'm curious as to what process you use, camera equipment and basically any tips you could offer me. Thank you SO much!! P.S. I upgraded to the Canon EOS 80D earlier in the year and currently shooting with a 50mm/1.8 lens View attachment 147918 . I believe this lens to be an affordable portrait lens, suggestions on that topic are welcome as well. Please do not post images to which you do not hold rights. You may post links.
