Sorry, I don't have a photo example to show but I have seen photographs like this times before and have not been able to get the same effect. When photographing people, I want to get it so all of the person is clearly in focus and the background is very out of focus. I have tried setting my apature to 2.8 and the shutter speed to what ever compromises with the apature, but the background is never as blurry as I want. I know this is achievable in photoshop with different blur options, but is there a way I can do this with just my camera? Do I need to use macro or manual focus at all?? Thanks in advance!
