IT’S NEVER TOO COLD FOR ICE CREAM (Part II)

With the winter refusing to give up, we’re trying to move on and warm up to something more exciting than the snow. And what’s better than some melty ICE CREAM! Let that insatiable appetite for luscious flavors and creamy textures stimulate your imagination. You will forget the cold in no time when the sensations explode, popping like fireworks from your taste buds. Your brain will instantly fall in love, as all you can think about is “ICE CREAM!” You have just been ice-creamatized!

We created these animated GIFs to illustrate that exact point – the love for ice cream never ends.

IT’S NEVER TOO COLD FOR ICE CREAM

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.

We are such enthusiasts, we even create our own homemade vanilla bean ice cream!

ICE CREAM POLAR PIZZA SHOOT

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).

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF ICE CREAM

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!

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!

TIMBERLAND WATERPROOF TECHNOLOGY

When it rained, it poured as we captured a short lifestyle video of Timberland’s Waterproof Technology in action! We learned to embrace nature as it comes and enjoy the good things. The best part of the shoot was having the option to stay dry and deciding not to.

BEST OF 2012 BEHIND THE SCENES

Here are some more of our favorite behind-the-scenes photo opps from 2012.  We hope you enjoy, and we look forward to capturing even more fun moments on set in 2013.  Happy new year, everyone!

GETTING INTO THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT

These cheery Baskin-Robbins holiday ads, featuring Michael’s photography, put smiles on all of our faces with their debut this month.  We are filled with holiday spirit here at the studio and hope all of you are having a festive December, as well.  ‘Tis the season!

How could you not smile seeing these cute faces light up your table this holiday?

Consider giving the gift of ice cream this year!

Michael’s photo of a Santa ice cream cake makes picking up a gift card simply irresistible.

This cake is so cute, it will be gone before you can sing one line of “Frosty the Snow—!”

Love featuring the Flavor of the Month.  Cool, minty chocolate chip ice cream must be Santa’s favorite!

GOBBLE GOBBLE

With this year’s Thanksgiving holiday just around the corner, we wanted to share a special treat that was brought to our studio by our wonderfully creative client, Baskin-Robbins.  We thought we’d pose the question: what do you get when you cross a seasonal bird and a cake made of ice cream?

Why, a Baskin-Robbins Thanksgiving Turkey Ice Cream Cake, of course!

Not your ordinary cake, you might be thinking, but this ice cream cake is sure to be the hit of many Thanksgiving dessert tables come this Thursday.  We had a rare opportunity to photograph this one-of-a-kind cake for Baskin-Robbins’ holiday promotion.  This bird’s looks caused us to get a little silly in the studio… and we weren’t the only ones who got a kick out of it.

Digital Tech, Jen, pretends to “bake” the turkey cake.  Thank goodness no one turned the oven on for this one, or else we would have had a melting bird on our hands!

Jen, a.k.a. Martha Stewart, fixes pancakes from scratch for our clients while the shots are displayed on the big screen in our client area.

Michael’s final shot of the Thanksgiving Turkey Cake.  Be careful you don’t mistake this one for the real thing come Thursday!

And for the more sensible portion-seeker this holiday season, there’s always the single drumstick.  Have a Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

BEAUTIFUL NEW PROPS!

We are proud to share with everyone the latest edition to the studio (besides Natalia of course): our new prop room!

We’ve been actively building out our props collection over the past year and a half, so this summer we thought it was about time to showcase all of our great finds.

Our clients now have easy access and visibility to our large array of props and dish ware.  If a client needs something last minute, there’s a good chance you can find it here.

Our prop room is full of in-house dishes, silver ware, fabric, napkins, and various other props.

All the fabric and napkins are neatly organized and color coded, the OCD Photographer’s dream come true!

We have a diverse variety of bowls, making it very easy to find the perfect one.

A small glimpse into our glassware section.

Need a plate?  We’ve got you covered.

Pinky’s favorite section 😉

We also have a great selection of wood surfaces (not pictured here), including some new ones we picked up at Brimfield this year.  If you have any questions about what we have in stock, please give us a call and we’d be happy to send over some images of our extended collection.
