Fake Ice Cream is a dream for a food stylist because it allows for a
shot to be lit without having the ice cream melt. We made this fake ice cream for our latest shoot with vanilla and chocolate to mimic the actual
brand which had a chocolate swirl as part of it's base.
Fake Ice Cream stand in for photographer's lighting.
Ambient temperature of studio with lights and crew on set affect the amount of time on camera and the ability to capture the best "hero" shot.
This was photographed on a June day in Florida.
