Macro Fun

Mandarin Oranges


Grapes

To recreate this type of picture you will need the following: a large glass, sparkling water, sprite or 7 up, fruit of your choice, rock salt, camera and macro lens. Pour the sparkling water into the glass. Add the fruit. To make more or extra bubbles add a few pieces of rock salt to the glass. Adding ice to the glass causes frost or condensation to the glass. This makes the picture appear blurry and frosted. I used a light behind the glass for illumination, no flash. Some editing was done to increase the contrast and brighten the picture. Caution: Don't drink from the glass! Have fun shooting macro.
