We want to see portraits with backgrounds that are thrown out of focus.

If you're new to Photo Month you can find out more about it in the what is Photo Month forum .

A rushed shot! Everyone was a tad over protective of Mr Benet! 50mm 1/1400sec iso 400 @f/2.8

This was the first image I took with my Nikon 50mm 1.4D lens. Taken at F1.4.

It was also the first image I upload to the site! Large image can be seen here which shows the bluring a lot more!

A recent effort with my new (to me) camera. One of only very few that I've shot in Jpeg. since I got it.

Portrait of a dead bird. Not a very cheerful subject, but I thought the bird was beautiful, despite being dead.

My 6 year old Daughter with Hello Kitty Facepaint, taken at 90mm focal length with f/4 aperture. The background is thrown out of focus by the shallow depth of field that f/4 allows. Distance from the subject plays a part in how much blur you get too, as does distance of background from subject. Here the background was approx 40-50meters away.

I used my 7D and a (homemade) reflector on the flash to avoid harsh shadows, and here is the result.
