Head-and-shoulder shots give the best background blur effect. Also, the farther
the subject is from the background, the more blurred the background will appear.

Use a telephoto lens to blur the background even more. If you use a zoom lens,
its longest focal length is the most effective (for example, a 24-85mm lens set to
85 mm).
