One of my favorite photography genres is food, and nearly all of the food I photograph is real. In fact, I usually photograph things I am planning on eating (and will often reheat the food after or use what is remaining in my kitchen to have for lunch or dinner). However, there is one exception where I’m perfectly okay with using something fake, and that’s with ice cream! Ok, technically it’s real food, but it is definitely not ice cream.

In this video I show a full walkthrough on making the ice cream, scooping it, adding it to a cone, and I also discuss adding melted drips to the scoop to add realism to the image. I also discuss when it’s okay (and not okay) to use fake ice cream in your photography. Watch it here or on YouTube, and please subscribe to my channel to get more of my videos like this down the road.
