Focus was diffficult to get. Small size, high speed, long distance shootting.

Not too shabby!

Maybe open up the shutter and blur the background a bit.

Yes, but I tried to get some movement (I didn´t get it) on the model using low speed shutter, that gave me big DOF.

Shoot wide open (about F2.8 or F4).

That will certainly blur the background.

You can then adjust your shutter speed and ISO accordingly.

You could use a slower shutter speed by using a ND (neutral density) filter.

Less light will be let in, so you can use a slower shutter speed.

Pan, with a slow shutter. That will blur the background very well.

Takes some practice, but it'sa technique worth learning.

Probably a bit overboard but heres an edit with a little motion added.
