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 . . . ;)

Hi there.

Check out this link for newbies.

and you can try to google for "depth of field" and "lens good bokeh".
