hello have couple of question about taking pix... i am using coolpix 5400 ...
i want to take a pix of my friend with blur background. In order to do that, i need to set the A to big right ? so i set it to f2.8 and zoom in as close as possible...if i zoom in too close to my friend, i will loss many backgroud object. How can i overcome this problem? plant or insect are easier as they are small. basically use macro can get the effect.
Also if i want to take a nite scenery with human in front. what is the best camera setting so that i can see both human and background clear and bright? i know i can set the shutter speed to lower (1 -2 secs) but it will blur the human object coz he/she will not able to avoid any movement for a short period of time.
