Video on how to blur photo background to make bokeh depth of field shots. Tricks and tips on the camera setting to blur out the distant items in a photograph yet make your subject clean and sharp.
1: Put your camera to Aperture Priority mode by turning the mode dial to ‘A’ or on Canon camers, ‘Av’.
2: Back up a little and zoom-in your lens – this will increase the effect.
3: Select the smallest f-number that’s available. If you’re using a kit lens and you’re zoomed-in, this will normally be around f5.6.
4: Tip to accentuate the effect, increase the distance between the subject and the background. So keep the person relatively close to you for a head and shoulders shot, and position them against distant background.
5: Once you are done capturing those bokeh photos, remember to set the mode dial back to your normal settings like Auto or Program mode.
