    Digital Camera World photo of the day

    The background is blurred in this image, which is achieved by using a wide aperture. The benefit of having a blurred background – particularly in portrait photographs – is that your eye will not be distracted by any objects in the background, and instead will focus entirely on the sitter. This shallow depth of field mimics the way your eye focuses, and gives the illusion of depth to a two-dimensional image.
