    Thank you! :) well to start off you'll need a clear glass, some Sprite or carbonated water, and whatever you want to photograph. I went outside on a bright day for this one so I could use natural light and a fast shutter speed. I set up the glass filled with Sprite on a table on a white posterboard and my camera on my tripod infront of it. My original idea was to drop the cherry in the Sprite multiple times until I got the perfect shot, but after a while it just wasn't working, so I just left the cherry in the Sprite and shook it until the cherry was in the position I wanted. My camera was less than an inch from the glass and it was on "Super Macro".
    hope that helps :)

    A black background and a slower shutter speed could've done more depth to this lovely shot.
    Thanks Hillary for sharing your 60th shot of the lucky cherry.
