Default Weekend away

Some photographs I took on a very hot Sunday in March. Hope you like them.What I like most about the closeup face photo's is I got to blur the background with my Panasonic FZ35 just like big brother DSLR..

Paul-

That is a very nice selection of photos.

You got the blurred background in the close-up because you were using the Macro Mode.

I was going to ask how you got the blurred background, but Sarah Joyce broke the code before I could get here. Very nice.

Sarah, can you please explain further this statement and what Macro mode has done that couldn't have happened in a normal shooting situation? Looking at the photo, it must have been taken quite a bit further than 1m away so I'm not sure where the macro mode comes into it.

Paul, looks like a good place to enjoy the sun for sure and the last two came out great

To help out Setter Dog, can you please let us know how far you were from the lady in the last two and what focal length/aperture you were using as the exif isn't included?

Hi MarKI was about 2metres not too sure in feet, away from the subject. That really is an amazing place.

Hi Setter Dog, basically (based on the above) as you are not going into the realms of close focus then Macro mode isn't needed just framing tight and using the widest aperture possible with the background a long way away. I believe if Macro mode was used and you go over 2m then you can't focus anyway.
