    I'm a noob. Just sharing on how to get that Bokeh effect. As xersion mentioned, lower the F. Then take the photo very close to your subject. Problem I have is the background is not as blur as I wanted because when I zoom in, the F also go higher. End up I bought a prime lens.

    basically you need to use longer focal length lens to achieve this effects, and get closer to your subject and place your subject far far away from background, let say the you are 3 meters away from your subject, you subject need to be at least 30 meters away from the background.


    Hope this help.

    Depending on how much gear you have. If you only have the body + 18-55 and 55-250, then 30L is more than sufficient. Most of the renowned shops are selling the Digi-Cabi DB-036 for around $120 or less.

    Just to clarify that Aipo dry cabinet has new local agent, and for Aipo dry cabinet users who bought their cabinet under old agent, please refer to this thread.
