    Sony Alpha 300 with a Minolta 50mm f1.7 lens and one of these things on the end of that http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000TQPTTM/?tag=tec06d-20

    It let's me get within inches of the subject to fill the frame, and depending on the aperture setting, I can get a nice slight haze in the image, which adds a nice little something to it.

    You can see what I mean in this photo:

    Around the edges of the petals, there's a slight haze, makes it seem "dreamy".

    If I wanted to take a picture and make the background blurry how would I do that ?

    I only have a bridge camera not a DSLR.

    If you are photographing something up close, the background should be blurry automatically.

    It is going to be really difficult due to bridge camera's having a large depth of field... The best way is to zoom in on the subject as tight as you can and it might create the Bokah effect you are looking for.

    NewEgg has the Panasonic DMC-FZ47K bridge camera on sale this weekend for $189.99 after promo code (EMCYTZT917)!

    Panasonic DMC-FZ47K Black 12.1 MP 3.0" 460K LCD 24...

    This is the big brother to the FZ40 I use, which is my second Panasonic bridge camera. I love these, and this version even records video at 1080p (mine is only 720p).

    I just hate that my IPTC SW is not working on the newer FF versions (that's an exposure/ISO-what ever information tool). Yes ISO is high/noise is high but how was the light? Some picture need the little bit extra (4 flashes/$10.000 camera/lense) to shine.

    It does look rather grainy dosnt it. I am slowly learning how to drive my camera. Using manual settings where daunting at first.

    I reduced the quality of this pic as tpu hosting would not allow me to upload 3.7 mb file lol. Here is my dog staring into space....

    One of the weddings we did flowers for recently, got published.

    my photos once we finished setup:

    I also made the table runners. Took a giant half-spool of this material,
    cut it in half, then cut it in multiple segments, then taped/painted out the yellow stripes.

    Here's the magazine the wedding got published in, with a bunch of photos from the wedding photographer: http://www.stylemepretty.com/2011/11/17/camarillo-wedding-by-hazelnut-photography/
