I thought I’d take advantage of the current cold weather in the UK and shoot some real ice cream. Simply turning off the heating in the garage studio sent the temperature down to -4. This does not stop the ice cream from melting but slows down the process considerably. It took around 25min for the ice cream to become unusable.
Real ice cream looks very different to the fake stuff. Researching ideas for this shoot I realised I can never create the same effect often seen when replacing ice cream with frosting. The real option is messy and will not look as structured and ‘tidy’.
