Strawberry Splash

My counter is now VERY clean :)

This photo is intended to serve two purposes:

1. For "get pushed", Wendy (@wenbow) challenged me to capture a water splash in colour...

2. And that thing going splash is a strawberry... which is food... thus, food photography for the One Night Stand Two challenge...

Very, very good, looks like an add for some sort of vodka or something. Ah I need to get out of my element too and into something different like this. What are your tricks?
posted September 26th, 2012  
@newbie i am without tricks... i follow the 3Ps... patience, persistence and perseverance! do you really want to know my set up?
posted September 26th, 2012  
@northy I am always curious as to the backgrounds. Did you do this on a mirror with a black background or was it in post. Sometimes I make a black background in post, which can take a while as I suck at editing.

Sorry, I forgot my question marks.

Hope the fine martini glass didn't get knocked over by the diving strawberry! Really good shot and very clever!

@newbie black counter and black bristol board and cleaned it up in post... i suck at editing too, other than the very basics...
posted September 26th, 2012  
This is very splashy!! I'm curious about the black background also!! Great shot!
posted September 26th, 2012  
this is awesome... I love how the splash coming out of the glass almost looks like a person trying to jump out of the glass
posted September 26th, 2012  
Great job. Love the splash. It looks so good next to the black.
posted September 26th, 2012  
Great work! I love the splash too. The black counter top works a treat for this.

This is fab, hoping to try this myself soon

Well this is a bit magical I must say! That colour on the black background is inspired!
posted September 26th, 2012  
Yes I agree, very magical, this is a great photo, i love the direction of the splash!
posted September 26th, 2012  
Very cool, and how clever to combine the two challenges into one ;)
posted September 26th, 2012  
Fantastic 2 for 1 shot! Love the black background, it really gives the strawberry and splashing water a very effective backdrop!
posted September 26th, 2012  
That splash is just brilliant!
posted September 26th, 2012

Amazing shot! Great colour and contrast against that dark background, and the frozen splash is terrific.
posted September 26th, 2012  
Awesome shot, I love how the water looks like glass just gorgeous
posted September 27th, 2012  
Great photography and the lighting that you have achieved against that perfect black background is perfect! Very impressive : )

I love this!! Great shot and perfect for the ONS challenge. Strawberries are my favourite food :) I have lots of colours of bristol board and use them for backdrops all the time.... cheap and easy to use :)
posted September 27th, 2012  
Very nicely done!! Love it ;)
posted September 27th, 2012  
nicely done. Love the splashing on the bottom half.
posted September 27th, 2012  
Bravo!!! brilliant answer to my push. Awesome water splash & I love the black
posted September 27th, 2012  
Clever! I love the splashes but being averse to bright colours would have preferred an ice cube to a strawberry! I'm such a miserable sod! :-)

how you did this ???
posted January 31st, 2013  
@payalminhas hi Payal... it's just a splash shot - there are many similar examples on 365... it takes a bit of trial and error, but basically i just dropped a strawberry into the martini glass which was very full of water and kept taking pictures until i got one with a splash i liked... because the glass was so full, the water went flying all around when the berry landed... i used flash in order to freeze the action, and so caught the water mid-air...
