Fill tumbler with sparkling water until level is above top of shot. Position coloured card at least 18" behind tumbler, and setup flash to light card. Hold flash meter at back of tumbler pointing towards coloured card, and take reading. Set camera to manual and use reading taken by meter, remember your sinc speed.
