2. To hold the water, I picked up a betta fish tank for about $5 at Walmart. I wanted it to be as clear as possible, so I used filtered water and filled it up as close to the top as I could without it spilling over. You might have noticed the tonic water in the background. I used that later, but we'll get to that.
5. Because a high shutter speed is required, I also placed two studio lights on either side. Now, this is quite a bit of electricity in close proximity to water that is going to be splashing around. Please be sure to not place the lights too close to the tank and that any extension cords or plug-ins aren't exposed.
6. Finally, the camera set up. First was the focus. I placed my strawberry in the water about where I would drop it and focused. Then I switched to manual focus to lock it in. Next, I needed as wide an aperture as possible. With this lens, that was f/5. I bumped the ISO up to 1000, which allowed me to set the shutter speed to 1/6400 sec.
