Macro photography of ice-cream

I recently purchased some ice-cream from the Nestle Heaven line of frozen confection. On a whim, I decided to take some macro shots of it.

The process involved a freezer-chilled plate and a warmed knife for cutting through brittle chocolate.

The first victim was of the “Chocolate Truffle” flavour. This is my favourite variant.

Someone had remarked that this is a “nice shot”, while another person said I have managed to make ice-cream look gross.

After about 10 minutes, which was not a very long time, the ice-cream was starting to turn into a soppy mess. It was due for consumption.

This evening, I got the Caramel Fudge flavour. I don’t like this as much as the Chocolate Truffle, but I wanted to try shooting this.

I ate this Caramel Fudge after the shoot.
