Bokeh at midrange?
Aug 18, 2012

Hello guys, I've seen some wonderful shots of people taking pictures of their friends across the table and it creates beautiful bokeh.

I'm running into an issue w/ f/2.0 on the X100.

I get my subject (wife) in focus but the bokeh behind her just isn't that strong. If I do a macro shot COMPLETELY upclose is when I get better Bokeh, is there any way around this or is it just the limitations of the camera's lens? I'm guessing I'm doing something wrong, I get the best bokeh when I'm right up on the subject but in this case it's not like I can take a picture of her just her ear or something haha. Thanks guys.

Fujifilm FinePix X100
