Defocus the scene
1 Work the angles Set manual (M) mode, choose a wide aperture (we used f/4 for our London Eye shot here) and to begin with use a high ISO such as 6400. Set your lens to manual focus and defocus the scene, then experiment with different angles while adjusting the focus ring.
2 Set up the shot Review your images and, once you have a composition you like, set up the shot again, but this time use a tripod, set a low ISO like 100, and use a long shutter speed so that the quality is better and the noise levels are lower.
