Today, I had to choose between doing a silhouette picture, or a picture of something that I'm obsessed with. So I definitely chose obsession. :)
While I wouldn't say that I'm OBSESSED with Ice Cream, I have to say that I like it a LOT, and I mean a LOT. I joke with some friends of mine and say that if a guy decided to propose to me with a pint of Haagen Daz Vanilla Swiss Almond Ice Cream, he'd get an automatic yes. He wouldn't have to do anything else. It's really just a joke though (or is it? :p).
I could easily eat a pint of ice cream in one sitting. There are periods of times where I would go through 2-4 pints over the course of a couple of days. It's insane. I do demonstrate self control at times and I would go a couple of weeks or so without it. Then, I often decide to treat myself with Vanilla Swiss Almond as a reward of something that I've done.
While Vanilla Swiss Almond is my favorite, there are some notable mentions like Chocolate Chip and White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. I would eat just about any kind of ice cream within reasonable combinations of Vanilla. I'm not a big chocolate ice cream person. It has to actually be pure chocolate ice cream for me to enjoy it.
Anyways, about the specs of this image. I probably should've been placing the image specs in each post, but I took it with my 85mm 1.8, shutter of 1/50, F/1.8, ISO 800.
I decided to keep it in color because I figured with the simplicity of the background, there really isn't much to distract from the subject itself. =)
