Do you love pictures with blurry backgrounds?  Although smartphones are not the best devices for doing this, it is still possible to do this with a little bit of knowledge, with the right settings, and could be further helped by software.

To achieve maximum effect, select macro focus mode on your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and shoot your subject as close as possible with your phone, while still being able to keep the image in focus.  Hold the camera perpendicular to the ground, so that you don't have it pointing down.  Make sure you have a background or wall as far as you can get it away from the camera.  You'll achieve descent results, but it can be further improved with the app, After Focus.  It is exceptional in finding the sharp edges in your already blurred background image to quickly isolate the subject.
