A Scoop of Ice Cream by Agnieszka Bodes

Can anyone ever turn down a scoop of rich homemade ice cream with loads of fruit on the side? My goal here was to highlight the texture and details of this frosty dessert and create an inviting scene. Photo was taken in natural light and cropped to meet Instagram requirements.

Born in Poland, Agnieszka Bodes lives in Ottawa, Canada. In 2011 she started a fashion blog called Dayweardilemmas, but her relationship with food grew more passionate than her love for fashion. She decided to create an Instagram profile called Dayliciousdilemmas (as food choices seem to be endless, and the question of what to eat is asked on a daily basis). She is constantly creating or testing new recipes. Her greatest inspiration is mother nature and natural light. Agnieszka uses self-painted photo backdrops and flea market finds to style her food photos. She believes that food is much more than most people think. It’s a mixture of colors, textures and flavours but also a script of childhood memories, moments shared with closest people, and details that often pass by unseen.
