    Hey, if you guys find a way to increase aperture, on a zoom, from f/2.8 to something wider, please share. I haven't, yet.

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    This is where isolating the subject using DOF and Bokeh saves the day. Not so much on the second image though which is pretty well OK anyway.
    This is just a rough manipulation to demonstrate the possibilities.
    And forgive me for mutilating your stuff.

    I did blur the background a little. I didn't want to make it look obvious.LOL I shot it at f/8like most of my images. I should have shot it at f/4.5.

    Thanks

    That would help but you'd have to zoom in as well. A focal length of 90 would not give the required DOF; 300 might.

    Very often there's no thinking time. Anticipation is the key.
