If you want the background to be blurred in a shot, you will need to move closer to the subject, recompose the image, and shoot. Since you're shooting digital, I strongly recommend a lot of practicing shooting at different distances and F-stops to determine what you're looking for.

Pls rate if helpful.
Thanks!

When tKing a picture...should my subject appear in the view screen window...the big screen? Or do you have to look in tiny scdeen to see subject when taking a picture?


Use the largest screen to get a better idea of the focus. Smaller screens lack the resolution to show a slightly unfocused shot - but it will be noticeable later when printed or viewed on a large screen. Of course, these screens eat battery life - so you can use your optical viewfinder whenever possible.

My Cannon Rebel XSi when pictures are taken are blurry


Try using manual focus. Make sure your auto focus points are correctly set. Look for button that looks like matrix. Press it then use/press joy stick type button to select auto focus point.

Canon rebel eos When trying to take a picture the autofocus won't work up close


Close up and macro photography require special lenses chances are you are to close for the lens to see what you are attempting to focus on. Another thing if you are hand holding the camera the chances are extremely good you can't hold it steady enough for the camera to lock on to the subject.
When shooting macro the depth of field is extremely shallow to you need to stop down the lens to maybe F11 or even F22 so now you have a light problem. You didn't say how close the subject was to the front of the lens. So to get started on this close up photograph mount the camera to a tripod switch the lens to manual and slowly focus on your subject. There is a small green dot in the lower right corner of the viewfinder that will come on sold green when your subject is in focus. If it doesn't you are to close to the subject for the lens you are using.

My canon rebel XSi will not auto focus


Actually what I found to solve the problem was to first set the lens in "MF" and practice taking a picture manually to see if that would work. When I did this, I discovered that the fine tuning portion of the lens was somehow stuck mechanically. I heard a loud click as I turned it. That was all it took to fix the focusing mechanism on the lens. Then I set to "AF" and Voila, the camera worked just fine.

Camera xsi rebel 12.5 megapixel won't focus with


Most entry level SLR cameras will struggle to focus in low light, especially with the kit lens. By rights the flash should popup and emit a flash pulse to help focus. This is called focus assist. You might have to consult the manual to check if this function is turned on or not.
