    hmm i would have preferred it if the entire strawberry was caught. Vertical composition perhaps?

    How the shot was taken ?

    The exposure was made completely out of flash power in order to freeze the motion. So, set to your x-sync speed which is 1/180s in my case, and a reasonably small aperture. As long as the frame is completely dark if not flash was used, it would be fine.

    And then set up a tripod, mount the camera, focus, my flash set to manual pointing directly. I tripped the shutter as I drop the berry at the same time.
    The white background was a white wall. Pretty simple.

    Sounds like a project that I can do at home, when it thunderstormed....

    er, you have a photo to the entire setup ? It would be helpful....

    Only thing is the sync between the "right moment". too soon, no berry, too later, game over liao.

    how many shots you take before selecting this ?

    Oh - IMHO, I think the partial glass & Sberry really adds to the splash drama... really....

    I used water, but u can use baby oil if you have slower reflexes.
    For me, I'm young and quick.

    Just kidding. I think some pros use baby oil.

    Nice! I prefer it as it is instead of full ... more unique feel.

    Had tried something similar but did't work out ... hope u don't mind sharing, were u using flash mounted onboard or off camera

    Thanks everyone for their kind words.

    Its different, but I'll take no credit for creativity. I've seen such shots before, just different subjects.

    Shall we let this thread go.... ? Enough posts in this thread.... let the new threads up. Thanks.
