|Understanding Depth of Field:
Stop-down your aperture.
The aperture on a lens refers to the "eye" of the camera. The lens aperture is similar to the pupil of an eye. If it is dark outside, your pupil will dilate. The same holds true for your lens aperture. This is also referred to as the f-stop setting. The higher the f-stop number, the smaller the aperture. The smaller the f-stop number, the larger the aperture.
Try stopping down to a larger aperture, which means a smaller f-number. You can try starting with f/2.8. The lower your f-stop number, the shorter your DOF is going to be. The higher the f-number, such as f/22, the more of the picture will be in focus.
