Depth of Field...

This post is for a photography challenge from the gals over on my Baby Center Board. The challenge was to set your camera to aperture priority and manipulate the f-stop to achieve a blurry background. It sounded SO complicated, but once I figured out how to change the settings it was easy to manipulate the depth of field. I've had my camera for a year and I've never taken it off "Auto" - why bother, it takes great "Auto" pictures. These were the best pictures from my experiment...
