I know it's done with the Aperture setting, but when I do it on the smallest number (2.3 or 3.2 whichever) the background still stays focused.

The only time it goes out of focus it when I use the macro on something really close.

What type of camera do you use? If it's a compact, the smaller sensor size on compacts yields less "bokeh" compared to larger-sensor cameras such as DSLRs, especially DLSRs with full-frame sensors.

Thanks for that

I tried playing with the manual focus and I started to get the background blur I'm after.
Going to play around with it tomorrow during the day.

This person has my camera, and they got the background using the Program feature:

Beautiful long exposures, jets! And the composition of the third shot is amazing.

Went for a trip around the local beaches today & found some whales passing by.






All up I think there were 3-4 pods and maybe 15-16 humpback whales.
