I tried out my e300 again this afternoon at Chinese garden and had a blast!The place is perfect for landscape picture taking practice ( newbie ).Two nights ago I was practicing in my room the portrait mode on which the background will be a blurred and somehow got it but when I went outdoors today, I can't seem to get the effect. Everytime I take a shot it's always like on landscape mode where all the images are detailed.It's cloudy this afternoon, does it have anything to do with the lighting?I'm using a 14-45mm lens.Is it because of my kit lens that I can't get the effect?
One more thing if it's cloudy which setting should I adjust? WB, ISO,setting ?
I saw a thread here that you can do it by using a software( Blurring the image ).
No offense to photographers using software to enhance the image but I wanted to learn how to do it without software enhancement as much as possible.That's why I'm taking it one step at a time.
I need advice from you guys.
Thanks in advance
