A nice strawberry dropped into a glass of water. Lighting by built-in flash.

Good shot, really like the composition of the whole shot. Now you know I going to steal your idea and try to do the same when I get some time.:G

Cali, how long does it take to fill a glass of water and drop something into it? It takes longer to think about it than to do it. Looking forward to your results.

:lol::lol:You haven't been to my house yet, but will try to get something done soon. I do have a charity photo shot this Saturday for MS. That's what I get for telling someone at work I was planning of being there for some photo practice, two company VP's saying thanks for being our official photographer.:?See always something going on around my house.

Scouse, it actually is as easy as I stated. Using manual focus and my flash settings (1/1000 sec, f13.6, ISO 400) I just stood beside the camera, left hand on the shutter and right hand ready to drop the berry. As long as the left hand knew what the right one was doing it didnt take many shots to get what you see.

Damn it! Now you have me curious. Next time my wife is out long enough for me to swab the walls and floors, I'll give it a try.

I like the effect.



Hmm...Maybe that bloody cat in the toilet........

Gee Souse, you got me curious now......cat in the toilet. Now that would be a picture. Not sure if you would get too many retakes. I might get me a hamster instead.
