Use the biggest aperture ie f2.8 or so.... aim at the subject that you want to have it clear and shoot.

Oso, you can try standing very near to a subject and shoot!

Ling, you are using 2800z so there aren't many settings that you can play with. In the above pic, the issue is a wrong focus. Try to half-press the shutter and check the focus first. In your pic, the background took up the majority of the frame and that might have made your camera focus on the background instead. Next time try half-press the shutter (and hold it there) so that the cam will start focussing and lock the focus. Use the EVF or LCD to check that it is focussing on the right subject. If it is, press the shutter all the way and take the picture. If it is not, release the shutter, try to recompose the frame and then try half-shutter again.

Hope this helps. :)
