Wondering how to get beautiful, buttery smooth background blur or “bokeh” in your photos?

there are three main ways to do this

——



👉🏼👉🏼lens choice

Get a telephoto lens- like a 55-250 or ideally a 70-200.

The more zoomed in you are to your subject, the more blur you have!

👉🏼👉🏼Distance from background

Simply gave your subject move away from the background a significant amount.
