Is there such a thing as reverse Bokeh? I am trying to photograph an american flag in the background with sea oats in the foreground. I was hoping for the sea oats to be blurred out with the flag in focus in the background, but I am having trouble achieving those results (the whole picture is blurred). I know it is a matter of changing settings. I have a D3100, kit lens, and 55-200mm zoom. I believe I was using the 55-200mm at the time.
For the record, I am a newbie amateur photographer. This is my first post here! I have only had my D3100 for a month or so, and still have a lot to learn. I understand the uses behind aperture and f-stop, I just don't know what settings to use with what I have in my possession.
Thanks a bunch! :-)
I'm grateful to have found this forum; lots of good stuff here!
