How to get a blurred background from your dSLR's kit lens There are plenty of good reasons to put down your smartphone or point-and-shoot and buy a digital SLR. If, for you, it was because you drooled over food photography with a shallow depth of field or portraits where the subject is in sharp focus but the background is blurred, you may have immediately been disappointed by your shots and left wondering what you were doing wrong. The fact is the lens that comes with most dSLRs, aka the kit lens, isn't really your best option for achieving a shallow depth of field. Without getting into the technical details, cameras with large sensors, such as digital SLRs, are able to create more background blur than the much smaller sensors in an average point-and-shoot. However, you'll also want to use a lens with a wide maximum aperture, something the typical kit lens just doesn't have.

It’s a good question and the answer comes from German photographer Martin Klimas. He starts by putting different colored paint on top of a speaker over some translucent material, then cranks up the volume. The vibrations of the speaker shoot the paint into the air creating beautiful patterns and sculptural forms, and Klimas snaps them with his camera while in flight. We’re used to seeing audiovisual collaborations, like those explored by Quayola and Jamie XX, but they’re usually animated using computer software, whereas this is a much more analogue affair.
DIY: Pixel Painting October 5th, 2011 The other day while editing some of my Iceland photos I accidentally scaled a photo down to 15 pixels wide instead of 1500 pixels wide, and I liked what I saw. Just a few blocks of color were able to maintain the mood of the photograph even though the details were completely lost. Before I knew it I was getting out my watercolors. So You Want to be a Photographer? I remember very clearly when I decided to become a photographer. I had been working as an aide at my children’s school and due to the state’s budget, cuts were being made. All aides were being laid off.
