As a Boston Food Photographer studio, it’s no surprise we like ICE CREAM around here! Just take a look through our website indresano.com and you will notice we are obsessed with ice cream! Some people love cat videos, we LOVE ice cream. We photograph ice cream, we video ice cream. If the sun were a ginormous scoop of tiramisu gelato we would be a sunflower basking in its delicious ice creamy rays. And we would take the ice cream on exciting adventures too. Like this recent project where we made cool melty looks from a few of our favorite flavors.
Nothing looks more tasty than melting vanilla ice cream.
Except melting chocolate ice cream!
Imagine doing a double twister triple somersault dive straight into this scoop Olympic style?
We are such enthusiasts, we even create our own homemade vanilla bean ice cream!
Who wouldn’t want to grab a Baskin-Robbins Polar Pizza slice after watching this!? Enjoy!
Check out the final video above!
Some of the behind the scene shots of our Baskin Robbins Polar Pizza. Took Michael and the team 3 days to shoot the sequences needed to make the cut. Each flavor was shot separately and edited in post to give that final polished look. Momentum, music, rhythm, appetite appeal, and the flow of the video are qualities that we focused on highlighting. In total there are 49 actual shots to create this 30 second video, however we took 2-3 takes per shot.
Something that looks simple in a video may be quite complex to shoot. Applying math is an indispensable way of accomplishing such a task. Image above shows how we divided up each slice and marked them numerically for an action sequence. In the final video clip, you can see the results of this kind of math in action.
At the end of the day, it is about getting the shot and getting it right. Executing creative ideas take a lot of “thinking outside the box”. This is just a casual example of the things we use to get the shots we want.
Very cool slow motion behind the scenes video of Jayna dropping the candy pieces on top of the Polar Pizza (below)! See the clip in the final Polar Pizza video at 0.07 seconds in (above).
It might be getting cold outside, but that won’t stop us from having fun with our favorite dessert: ice cream! Our team spent some time recently creating some very appetizing treats and showing them off in a lively way. Check it out below!
Scooping up ice cream for the whole studio!
Don’t leave the sandwich by the window too long!
Make sure to eat it before it all melts!
Ice cream scoops not your thing? What about a nice cappuccino milkshake?
Top it off with with some cinnamon and whipped cream and who could resist!
All ice cream tastes better with some hot fudge!
Even though it’s winter, there’s still room for some summery raspberry ice cream in our studio!
With all these delicious treats tempting us, we had just as much fun eating it as we did shooting it!
Since it has been so cold lately, we thought it would be a nice time to shoot some warm Belgian waffles, fresh from the iron. The wonderful smell filled the studio and if it was not for stylist Monica Mariano from Ennis Inc. fighting us back, the waffles would have been eaten instead of making fantastic images!
The ingredients are simple, but very tasty when whisked with skill and carefully cooked.
The Bananas Foster was a very lovely touch to our waffles. Stop by the studio anytime and we will cook up a batch!
Monica slowly builds the tower of waffles.
Sometimes stylists need a little help to keep tall stacks of waffles from falling over… shhh we won’t tell!
Michael Screams for Ice Cream!

The boys, Michael and digital tech Rob Coshow, patiently waiting for the ice cream to be prepped, for shooting and tasting!
Making the picture perfect sundae is no quick fix.
Finally time, working the soft serve machine for the ultimate swirl.
Melting stand-in, soon to be Michael’s third ice cream of the day.
Client Chris Seremetis couldn’t let the non-picture perfect swirl go to waste….
