This morning, I laughingly joked on facebook about the prompt and the fact that it had finally stopped raining here. Doesn’t that just figure? I joked.
Immediately, everybody started on food.
(and I’ve been hungry ever since)
I had the idea to go over to the local ice cream shop and plead beg cajole ask the owner to make me a delicious looking concoction that I might photograph for my online class. Pretty please. With cherries (literally!) on top.
She was a little unsure of my whackjob self, but she agreed!
And better than that, she went all out and totally helped me plan and get this done.
(hi Michelle! thank you!)
The only available ‘drizzle’ we had was some yummy hot fudge. So we did this …
(well, she did this, technically I stood around and pointed a camera at her)
Not bad, and totally fun! Look at Michelle go with that fudge … woooot!
(ssshhhh … she’s camera shy)
But you know me, never satisfied. And I couldn’t get the idea of a retro looking sundae out of my brain. It was stuck there. I’m like a dog with a bone when I have an idea. And her cool pink ice cream shop was begging me to figure it out.
So as I sat there eating my props (homemade props I might add – ice cream from scratch! and omg yummy) I contemplated the situation.
and then …. cherries … hmmmm … cherry juice …
Well hell, cherry juice will drizzle!
Hello brain, glad you could make it.
Now that’s what I’m talking about!
I only ate part of this one … shush.
All of the shots were processed in lightroom with the peachy fade preset I’m still working on. I applied some textures to the bottom two shots to give them that soft fun look I was after.
Are you hungry now? Craving some ice cream?
Thanks again Michelle, for being so kind to this nutbar with a camera. Your indulgence was totally appreciated :)
