A Snail’s Pace — Photo 4 — Project 365

Published Reading Time ~1 min Filed Under Project 365

On my way home from some morning errands, I spotted a snail working its way along the concert lawn edger. In the few minutes I took to get my camera from inside, he was gone (I have no idea where he could have got to…), but I did find his buddy working across the grass. Now this guy’s famous!

This is similar to the technique I used yesterday, where you stop down the f-stop number to limit what’s in focus. At ƒ/1.8 it gets rather tricky as, if you set it wrong, you’ll have the grass in front in focus and not the snail…
