Strawberry in Lemonade - check!

As I have less than 100 days left to complete my challenge I thought it was time to start doing the essential shots that I never knew existed until I did this project - especially on days when time is short and inspiration shorter. So here is a slightly old strawberry in some slightly flat lemonade... and as it's a bit arty, man, I thought I should put it in a frame. Yeah cool man.

My friend will be so touched by your lovely comments on her little cottage which I posted yesterday - it is a beautiful house, sympathetically furnished inside and yes, containing loads of original features especially as it has a 'listed' status meaning she has a duty to keep it intact for the next generations. Thank you all :)
Delicious! (The photo I mean, I don't like strawberries!)

This looks so beautifully refreshing and effervescent. Makes me a little thirty! If you have time, I'd LOVE for you to say how you shot this and if there are any tips you could share!

nice!

Great idea! I'd love to try something similar - if only to get to enjoy the strawberry and fizz afterwards!

Nice shot. I've done my 365 but bubbles is something I haven't done!

Great capture and an inspiration, I must try something like that.

And here I thought it was an alcolhol beverage of some type! Looks enticing enough to drink!

Looks yummy very nicely done I love the profusion of bubbles! SO many silvery bubbles and they contrast perfectly with the lush red strawberry!

You crack me up! Great shot - how many more essential shots have you left before the year's up?

@thendrix58 Hello there! Thanks for your interest - I tried various ideas but in the end found a small glass with just enough lemonade to cover the strawberry worked well. I waited a little for the bubbles to form and attach to the fruit as well as the glass, and had it with daylight on one side. I put a chopping board behind it (!) for a plain background, and set my camera on a box on a macro setting at just about the right height. I liked this angle, with the daylight shining on the bubbles best of all. I upped the shadows a little on the computer, boosted the colour a bit and cropped it. My camera is very basic so a lot is click-and-see. Happy experimenting! (If only it were champagne and we could drink it after with benefits!!) :)

Tis cool indeed. Quite 'pop arty'. I'm loving the colours and the fizz xx

Love this one! The lighting is great with all the bubbles and the bright red of the strawberry - fabulous!

Love the colour, cool shot.

Thank you for explaining how you created this affect. It is quite effervescent! Pun intended. ;) Where is the list of essential shots for 365? I have never heard of that.

Aren't you just so creative? ! :) Love it !!

@sandier Thanks Sandie! There isn't a list of essential shots as such ... just my observing that a lot of shots seem to get done by lots of people - eg water crowns, drips, fruit in pop, moon... haven't done one of crayons yet or the reflection in a horse's eye.... so much playing still to do!! :)

Brilliantly captured! Can't believe we're nearing the home straight!!
