    Hi, Welcome to CS . . .

    Believe that you are looking at Bokeh (blur background), pls read up on Aperture mode.
    - Wider aperture (the smaller the number will be the widest in your lens)
    - Closer to your subject that you are shooting
    - you should able to get a 'blur' background (Bokeh)

    Hope it helps . . .
    Shot more cos digital is FREE !!!

    then I would suggest you can try attending some basic photography lessons. You can look for those lessons under workshop, tutorial and classes subforum and here.
