The World Shot Through a Light Bulb

Flickr user Henrique Feliciano Silva made this neat photograph by hollowing out a light bulb, filling it with water, hanging it upside down on his balcony, and shooting his neighborhood through it with a shallow depth of field.

    On Flickr he says it was at f/25. I’m a novice so could easily have got this the wrong way round, but isn’t that a very deep depth of field, not shallow as per the post? Or is the focal length / focus point somehow making that shallow?

    I’d love to know if prints will be available!

    Aperture is not the only thing that defines the depth of field. The focal length used was 149mm, and the camera was probably relatively close to the subject with the background being quite far, leading to the shallow depth of field.
