Try Portrait Mode

In order to achieve an attractively shallow depth, professional photographers use telephoto lenses and wide apertures to take portraits. Phones with portrait modes replicate that by adding secondary zoom lenses and software, which blurs the background artificially.

The depth effect works best on most phones when your subject is about 6 to 8 feet away. Try, to shoot with the portrait mode, changing your distance, your angles and your background to see what you get.
