:dance: dance of the carbon bubbles :dance:

Tutorials and Resources
- Set up for bubbly photos: [link]

Materials and Methods
Nikon D80 + Nikon AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 G ED II lens + magnifying glass. The cherry was attached to a white Styrofoam piece with a sewing needle. The contraption was then submerged in a vase filled with seltzer water. The Styrofoam was a bit larger than the vase widthwise so that it would create greater tension and wouldn't float. A top from an old Fossil watch box was used as the background. The dark background caused glass scratches and imperfections to show. Increased contrast to make the scratches more visible. Color balance for a vintage-ish feel. See my FB page for the original and post-edited: [link]

Additional Comments
The bubbles are technically carbon dioxide ;P I liked all the weird textures and scratches; thought I'd share it :D Check out the print for crisper details, better vignetting, and more negative space

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl

I loved this. I also particularily loved the vintage feel to the background. Like some found picture in a drawer. 
Probably I am going to soak all kinds of stuff in selzer and mount my Nikon with a macro in fornt of it. You gave me a whole new set of ideas :-)
