    help me, my subject is 50m in front of me and i don't seem to get the background and foreground blurred? i did this without any calculation like you mentioned.. i set aperture at f/1.8..

    so how?

    The 50/1.8 when set to f/1.8 and focused at a subject 40+m away (not an impossible scenario), has a DOF that extends to several hundred metres.
    So it's not true that it will always blur the foreground/background.
    Exploring! :)
