It will also help if you place your subject in bright light against a dark background in the shade.

Buying another lens with a larger aperture is the best solution and the cheapest option would be a manual focus 50mm f1.8 legacy lens with an adapter. The most cost effective Micro Four thirds native lens is the Olympus 45mm f1.8.
thanks, it seems to work but i'm not getting my desired results, maybe its because of the camera/lens that am using...
