Sliced a peice of orange put it a glass with seltzer water, added a little salt for more bubbles and shot away with Canon 1DMK2 with Sigma 105EX macro lens. Light was from the window to the left.

Thanks, here is another one but this time a Lemon with neon green paper background. Again I taped the peice of paper to the back of the glass used a cloths pin to hold the slice of lemon filled glass with seltzer water an then just a little salt for more bubbles. Shot at F25.

Stuff like that makes me REALLY jealous. One of the reasons why I bought a digital camera was to take really close in macro shots. When I went to buy my camera, the damn thing was discontinued and unavailable (Pentax Optio 450) and I ended up with a Kodak DX7630. An AMAZING camera in its own right, but it lacks the ultra-macro mode I wanted.

Awesome shots, by the way.

Well technically it's not 'his' method, it's some other guys that I saw/read in a photography magazine I read in a hospital waiting room.

You kind've really need a macro lens and good light to achieve this.
