I'm totally new to photography and need your help.
I've read much about ISO, Aperture and Shutter speed. I know to get a blurred backround: use a wide aperture. Also I know the distance between camera and object is important.
But every single time I've tried to get a blurred background, I've achieved nothing! I was thinking maybe it's not possible to have this effect with a 18-55mm STM lens at all. This is on a Canon 70D
Is that right? If not, what is your recommended setting to get a blurred background?
Best shot I could get is this. f/5.6, 1/250, ISO auto:
