Did I drop three strawberries?

Actually no, there is only one strawberry, and one drop. In addition, aside from some colour correction, there is no Photoshop manipulation.

So how is this done? It is a multiple exposure using a highspeed strobe.

I used the Canon 580EX's "Multi" mode to fire 3 flashes with a 15Hz frequency. This exposed the strawberry at a few different points in the drop. Since the glass is stationary, and the water is mostly clear, you get this effect.
