Seven Up, Ice and a Slice
This is a revisit of an earlier shot (Lemonade and Lime). In that shot, the Lemonade went flat really quickly. I wanted to try and capture the bubbles fizzing out of the glass, however when I redid the shot, I had exactly the same problem. I decided to try out an idea from mcollins123 who suggested putting salt in the drink. I didn't have any salt to hand but I tried a teaspoon of sugar instead. The effect was rather dramatic (and involved a lot of cleaning up afterwards). I got the dancing bubbles, but the whole drink turned to foam and didn't look so good.
The final shot is a composite of the two pictures. The bottom half of the glass is the still drink and the top half and the lemon is the fizzing drink. Hopefully the join is not too obvious! :)
I may give this one more go as I like the fizz in this shot, but I am not so happy with the way the glass is lit. Now I know how to make bubbles, I just need to bring everything together!
Setup was the same as before: Setup shot
