... Pay no mind to the unprofessional attempt to blur out the background... its ugly.. lol

Well you made an attempt anyway... well done!
try this... (very quick and very dirty, but suffices most of the time)
in photoshop, make new layer from background. 
select copied layer
filter -> blur-> gaussian blur (select whatever pixel radius suits you)
select the eraser tool - set brush size to something reasonable and erase out the bits you dont want blurred.
flatten image (select layer --> Flatten)
and voila!
Taiwo Kamson: Aww thanks a bunch Trey.. This is so Helpful.. I also actually have to learn to be able to do this directly from the camera.. a low depth of field its called.. But I'm definitely going to practice this quick trick you just taught me... thank you for leaving a comment..

Not sure where you are but if you slap a cheap (approx. £70) 50mm 1.8 on your camera you'll be doing that all day long.. smile
Taiwo Kamson: Will look that lens up.. I'm in Lagos though
