My Name is Karlo de Leon and I've been conducting beginner to advanced photography workshops since 2007.
In this guide, I will clearly explain what it is that creates background blur so you'll be able to create them effectively. Your job is to take your camera out and experiment on different settings to figure out what kind of background blur you can get with the type of camera and lenses you have.
Since I started my photography career in travel photography, I never had time to look at the numbers, so my training does not involve knowing exact measurements. Rather, I rely on my eyes and I compare what I see with what settings I use.
I suggest that you do the same as you go through the material. If you find you like that approach, feel free to use it later on.
Most importantly – Enjoy the guide.
I’ll see you on the other side.
