Taking pictures of drinks is complicated, but fascinating variety of food photography. A long decision-making process, which requires participation of clients and their managers, stands behind most of studio photos. So, drinks stay in a studio for a long time. Using real ice in such circumstances is extremely inconvenient and unreasonable.
Artificial ice is essential item in a toolbox of food photographer, when photographing of cold drinks takes place. It makes the process much easier, and ensures intended effect.
The most obvious advantage of artificial ice is that it does not melt. Quality of ice is extremely important as well. Japanese styrenic and acrylic ice is the best, I’ve ever worked with. The ice is perfect! I would definitely recommend it!
