Hi I am new to SLR cameras and got a D3100 with the D3100 18-55mm and 55-300mm lenses which I haven't had much of a chance to play around with yet but I was wondering. Without getting a 35mm or 50mm 1.8/1.4 lens, am i able to take pictures with blurry backgrounds similar to that of using the lenses mentioned above? When I am in guide and i go to soften backgrounds it only lets me put the Ap down to 6.5 for some reason.. does it matter where I have the zoom set when I change the app? sorry if this is a dumb question, i am THAT new.
