  1. Hi all, I am newbie from Sheffield, England with a brand new X-T 10 - and I would like to get out of Auto mode... I've always been a big fan of shots with a shallow depth-of-field and a nice blurry / creamy background. I have tried to emulate some of these myself with my X-T 10 and XC 16-50mm kit lens, but have largely failed. Here's a shot of my back garden shot at f18. Ignore the terrible composition and the slight under-exposure. Sorry it's more of a thumbnail than an image, but there appears to be a new guy limit on image files sizes. And here's a shot of my back garden at f3.5. Now there is a bit of background blur when I am shooting wide-open (f3.5 is as wide as the XC kit lens will go). But not a whole lot - and a lot less than the blurry / creamy backgrounds that you see in the magazines, manuals and "how to" guides at even higher f numbers. Am I doing something wrong? Or do I just need a faster lens to get the effect I am after? Right now, the only way that I can blur the background the way I want to is to use the "miniature' filter. That's a cool look, but also rather stylised. And it feels like cheating... Thanks in advance. Be kind, remember I am newbie! MW
