An experiment in extremely shallow depth of field. These are miniature clay snakes that were being prepared for a crafts lesson. Offhand I can calculate a depth of field of a couple of centimetres (around an inch at best). To achieve this I went in close, zoomed in as much as possible and opened the aperture as wide as I could.
