1 Use the long­est fo­cal length

Zoom the lens to its long­est fo­cal length, as the nar­rower an­gle of view this gives you will en­able you to frame the sub­ject against a smaller patch of the blurred back­ground.

2 Hold back the back­ground

Make sure the back­drop is po­si­tioned far enough from the sub­ject so that is falls out­side of the depth of field – the fur­ther away the back­ground, the more blurred it will ap­pear.

3 Get in close

Move in close to your sub­ject, as the closer you fo­cus, the shal­lower the depth of field, and the more blurred the back­ground will be.
