    1) Distance from camera to object, as near as possible
    2) Distance from object to background, as far as possible
    3) Aperture of camera, as big as possible

    Of course, don't forget to factor in composition.

    Zoom to an adequately long focal length and shoot at the widest aperture.

    just to add on to ahbian's point

    Aperture as big as possible means the F number as small as possible. Not the other way round.

    Sigh, to think I answered in the other thread. Post count: 2 from TS, both on the same thing. Must be really "that important".

    The effort he put into posting would have gotten him all the answers he could ever want if he didn't rely on spoon-feeding.

    Play around with your camera until you get it.

    All the points are generic, zooming in (increasing the focal length) would also help in blurring the back ground. When I mentioned about composition being important, I mean that the blurring of background is just an effect, it doesn't automatically make for a good photo.

    What subject are you experimenting on?
