NOTE
Images with blurred backgrounds can also be captured using the methods below:
1.The further the distance between the subject and background, the better.
The further the distance between the subject and background, the more blurred the background will look. The subject will also stand out better against an uncluttered dark background.
 
2.Use a telephoto lens.

3.When shooting a person, focus on their face.
Check that the AF point covering the face turns green.
