Tips for blurring background lights for better photographs
At times, blurry background lights can be an interesting stylistic choice for photography to create an interesting soft background. For creating blurry background lights, a shallow depth of field is required lowering your F-Stop or aperture.
For the blurry light effect, the first thing is to set your AV or aperture value appropriate and then set your F-Stop to 1.8 or the lowest number that your camera allows. Mind it, the lower the number, the more blurred your background will be.
This setting of the camera allows more to create less focus on your background and more focus on your subject. After, ensuring it, focus on your subject and click without a camera shake. You can easily create the images you want with just a little bit of practice.
The situations in which this kind of photography can be done are the festivals with decorative lighting, marriages, procession at night, neon and sodium lights in the street.
In a nutshell, it is a three step photography. First, choose the aperture priority’ mode; then adjust the aperture so it shows the smallest f-number; and focus on your subject to click.
