Question about Canon Cameras
You're seeking what's called a "narrow depth of field." Depth of field is controlled by three factors: focal length of the lens, the lens aperture (f/stop), and distance from the camera to the subject.
The longer the lens, the narrower the depth of field, The larger the aperture, the narrower the depth of field. The closer the distance, the narrower the depth of field.
Unfortunately, the lens on the S90 is a 6-22.5mm zoom, and a lens that short is going to give you a rather wide depth of field in all cases except extreme closeups.
Here are some things you can TRY to get the desired effect:
Set the camera to the sports or portrait mode to get it to try to reduce the depth of field.
Put as much distance between the subject and the background as possible.
Get as close to the subject as possible.
Zoom in as much as possible. (I know this conflicts with the previous one.)
