maybe you could elaborate 'clear'?
use a small aperture and mount your camera on tripod. clean your keyboard before taking the shot?

try to shoot straight on instead of slanting the keyboard is u want entire key board to be in focus.

move backwards if u dont have a wide angle lens.

the more u slant and go near, the deeper the dof u need, ie small aperture. but if u dont have wide angle lens, it is very difficult to achieve the dof.

also, typically, if u close down beyond f8 or f11 (depending on lens) diffraction comes in and image becomes "soft" again.

lighting also very important.

focal length is impt, u use a 50mm, u have to see where you are shooting from, the distance... if the infinity say 5 meter... ur item to fit full view is 2.5m, then still need to close down alot.

but for wide angle, infinity say 2m, item to fit full view is 1m, but i dun wanna take so near due to distortion... i shoot at 2m, no need for f8 or f11... and can use natural lighting...
