Re: Isolate the foreground subject from the background, when possible

This is easily done shooting with a wide open aperture (eg f/2.8), a long focal length (eg 200mm) and being relatively close in terms of focus distance to the subject. Helps too when there is distance between the subject and the background. Subject placement can be key.

I agree that this type of approach yields the most striking results.  Currently I'm limited with only the kit lens.  When possible, keeping the backgrounds as uncluttered as possible does look significantly better.  Where's Scotty's transporter when you need it ?  Again, my thanks for this and the chuckle I got when I looked at your personal info and read your occupation.    Mike
