I managed to capture this useing a fish tank with a white background sitting on kitchen foil to reflect the light from one of my studio flash heads fitted with a shoot through umbrella. I made sure that the glass of the tank was very clean and free from any spears and marks i also used filterd water to make sure i didnt get any unwanted chalk particles, camera was mounted on a tripod about 2 ft away from the tank. I held the kiwi in the water in the desired postion at first to get correct focus and took a couple of practice shots to ensure lighting and focus was how i wanted it, once i was happy with the position i held the kiwi about 12inches above the water and dropped it while fireing the camera and it was realy just hoping for the best as the kiwi kept rotating backwards so i had to keep adjusting how i held it so it would end up straight as it entered the water, the hardest part was dropping the fruit and shootoing the camera at the same time, however it was well worth it and i am extreamly pleased with the result.
