Not quite as I expected.


I tried doing the fruit in the soda water thing but it didn't quite turn out as I hoped, because I had left it later in the day to do and it was very overcast I needed to use a very shallow DOF to compenste for the lower light so I could set my shutter speed reasonably fast to catch the bubbles. I also used my extension tubes which lessen the DOF even more, as a result I have only been able to catch the focus on the bubbles on the outer edge of the rind. I quite like them though they are quite cute. It's my own unique version. for the 'fizz' section of the BB 26 things challenge.

Love it Susy. I'm not very good at close-up, advert style photos.
In response - I have'nt taken enough pics with the new camera to know about my style being different (before we went on hols we took it back and it's been sent off for recalibrating) but from the photos I had taken they looked a bit different to me. Maybe just because it was an slr as opposed to the point and shoot I've been using.

I upload straight from the computer. I only use photobucket for things like avatars, etc that require it to be hosted.

I think this pic is great. Love the colour and the bubbles. i have been meaning to ask you, When is your birthday? My is in sept. I can't beleive I'll be 40, not that I really mind, its just that I still think I'll 22, coz I don't know where the years have gone since I was 22.That is until i see 22 year olds going out and partying all night and going to work the next day - that's when I realise I'm a long way from 22.
