Try using a narrow apature higher f number try the highest you have, you will need to increase your Iso to get the same or faster shutter speed or a day with more light as you will get less light in with the narrow apature. With stationary objects you can keep the ISO low narrow apature and use a slow shutter speed if you use a tripod.

Have a practice on various objects such as shooting along a fence using different apertures and see how wide open low f numbers give a shallow depth of field and closed down high f numbers give a deeper depth of field and how they affect the shutter speed.

MrGoatsmilk: Thank you, since reading your advice I have been playing around with the camera's settings, when time and light are on my side I will go out and practice like you suggested.
