How do you blur the background?

Megalithicmatt Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2011
Use a wide aperture - f/2.8 in this case.

When I look at this, it reminds me of a snail that's... the size of a human or something. I think it's the angle.
Hello, scary dream of giant man-eating snail.

This really looks like it could be some alien creature in this shot, without the context of the shell and all that. Nice close up, only way some of us will have the courage to look at all those details (in all their slimy glory)
