I love your photography. Can you tell me how you get the background to be blurry while focusing on a subject?
Thanks, Kate. To get the background blurry, or a shallow depth of field, you need to use a large aperture (small f stop number) or you can use a zoom lens to zoom in, which gives a similar effect. If you don't have manual settings on your camera, you may have a macro setting which you could use for close ups like this one.
which do you prefer? How do I change the f stop on my camera? I have a nikon as well!
Kate, I'd suggest getting out the manual to your camera. Each camera is a little different.
Yes, these are very cheerful pictures. I wish you luck with your house hunt. There should be tons of good deals in Salt Lake with the economy the way it is.
