Sweet Sunday, Ice Cream Edition [162/366]

Day 162.


One of my fellow 366ers, flashfix, has been posting delicious photos of sweets as her photo of the day every Sunday. This week I decided to get in the game, thanks to fresh local strawberries and amazing chocolate ice cream my wife made last week.


This is also my first attempt at lighting food with an off-camera flash. Ice cream on a hot night is a tricky subject as there is only so long you can adjust before it melts. Strawberries are tough too, as I couldn't figure out how really get the lighting so they pop.


Strobist info: 430EX camera left and a bit above, 1/2 power, through a white umbrella. Silver reflector camera right.
