I just got my canon EOS 500D Kit 1 3 days ago through the canon privilege purchase. Its certainly a good camera which take sharp and quality images.
Im new to DSLR photography btw and do guide me along!
Recently i was taking picture in birthday parties with the kit lens. The shooting condition is as below, aperture is set to the widest available in the zoom range and the auto focus was manually selected to focus a spot. However i couldn't get much of a background blur effect. BTW the shoot is night and indoor.
So i was wondering if the problem lies with my techniques or the limitations of the kit 1 lens?
