I think this is a great photo but I cannot get the background to blur. I just cannot figure out what it is that I am doing wrong. What am I doing wrong?
I used my 60mm macro lens.
I used my tripod.
I created a white backdrop with paper towels.
I used a white paper towel to reflect the light.
I positioned the doll directly under the under cabinet light.
I used a flashlight to shine a light on the doll from the side.
I shot from less than one foot away. I shot from more than 3 feet away.
I shot from above eye level, below eye level, and at eye level.
I started with f2.8 and made my way up the aperture stops, this photo is f5.6.
