Guys, that's what I'm looking for as tips. Can someone instruct me on how to get these results?


There are at least three options to get a nice bokeh shot.


- use a long focal length, e.g. >50mm

- get close to the subject (you can also use macro rings/extension tubes or macro lenses to get even closer) and keep a decent distance to the background

- use big apertures, e.g. f/1.4


All these three can also be combined. Here you can see how it all works together: http://www.fuji-x-forum.com/topic/317-135mm-lens-comparison/

135mm, f/2.5, 3m subject distance, ~13m background distance
