Use a Wide Aperture to Eliminate Distractions

When shooting on location, there are often unwanted Background elements that you can’t do anything about but try your best to shoot around them. A good way to do this is use a wide aperture such as f/1.4 or f/2.8 for a shallow depth of field. If you don’t have a lens that opens that wide, you can get as close as possible to your subject and have your subject as far away from the Background as possible. This will increase the amount of blur on your Background.
