Most of us have come to believe that iPhone or any modern smartphone can take nice photos. It is true for outdoor or landscape photos in good light but for portraits, indoor photos or for low light photography, iPhone or any smart phone can be challenging.

Having ability to blur background can help you control what your viewer sees. Here are two photos of a rubber bands minion that my 8 year old son recently made.
