Erm I got a question here. When people takes photograph using DSLR do they pre set the setting or do they use auto mode? I mean like taking a football match, I doubt there is enough time to keep setting the aperature and shutter.. For me, I only take photos of things that dun move like the durian by singapore river since I am still quite new to this. However when it comes to moving object I always cannot get the effects I want. For example the object is sharp while the background blur. Can anyone advise me on this? I am using Sony W1 so my aperature setting is limited to 2 choice only. Also is there any golden setting like for example sports use 1/80sec f3.4...

shoot at the widest aperture you have and use Aperture Priority (Av)
Your object should be as close to you as possible to pull the distance between foreground and background further

I see so it means if I got f2.8 and f5.6, I should use f5.6 to create that effect, right? But one thing is that Sony W1 does not have any aperature mode so I have to keep setting the shutter speed? Can I do anything about it?
