Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
Hi I have Nikon D40 camera with standard 18-55 mm lens. The problem I have is when I made a photo during the day background is a bit blurry. for example the person looks fine but the objects around him are blurry.
What kind of settings I need to change.
Thanks for your help.
This is, in most cases, a desired effect (bokeh) which is used to "detach" the subject from the background avoiding the viewer of the picture to be distracted by the background. This technique is widely used in portraits. This effect effect will be more pronounced when the lens is wide open (in your case it should be f/3.5 if I remember well...). To practice you may try the following: set you camera to "A" mode and take one picture of something (it should not be a landscape) using the smallest aperture after this take the same pic using the biggest aperture. With the lower f number you should get a blurry background and with the biggest the backgroud should be in focus!
