Photography NFTs. The NFT world is absolutely crazy, you have people selling images and digital art for millions of dollars. It is absolutely insane. I recently published some of my NFTs on Foundation. It is a website for artists to sell NFTs, the only catch is that it is by invite only. However, this is a really great-looking site where you can find all kinds of incredible pieces of art by other incredible artists.
Here is the first NFT I dropped on Foundation. It’s called pink and it’s one of my favorite photos. You can read the full story about it on Foundation.
The Miami Museum of Ice Cream is as Pink as you imagine
What is this place? Its the Museum of Ice Cream. I had no idea what to expect before walking into the Museum of Ice Cream. As soon as the door behind me closed all I could see was pink, like being inside a massive cotton candy ball.
Ok ok, here is what I want you to do. Close your eyes, now imagine walking into a happy place, not just any place but a place you would read about in a children’s fantasy book. Are you there? Now paint it pink. Yes, its kind of like that. People smiling, kids laughing it is just a great time. Ok great, let’s walk through the place together.
With a massive grin on my face, I approach a fortune teller, and you guessed it, she is dressed in pink. She asks me to pick a card, and after careful consideration, the card is chosen. Like a kid at a candy store, am full of joy and I listen as she reeds my fortune. I was kind of skeptical at first but I do not want to spoil this adventure for you but let’s just say she predicted everything correctly.
We make our way to the first room, where the sprinkle pool is. It is epic but a bit crowded. There are screaming children everywhere. We wait until everyone exits and we get our shots before the next group comes in.
The Museum of Ice Cream gets cooler as you start walking through the mase of pink.
The beautiful thing about the Museum of Icecream is that the fun never ends, they have ice cream in just about every corner, and every spot is a photo op. Let me rephrase that, is an incredible photo op, unlike any photo op out there.
We spent about 3 hours there and we could have spent a lot longer. Once you make it past the first room, the crowds start to dissipate and everyone starts to go at their own pace, some slower than others.
Cameras are allowed and you can click the day away in just about every corner. The entire staff is friendly and they go out of their way to help you get your perfect shot. Overall it was a very pleasant experience.
The Museum of Icecream finishes at the rooftop of the building. A nice place to eat the last scoop of key lime pie ice cream while watching the sunset with an epic ocean view.
Here are some of the photos we shot. The model is Mercedes, you can follow her on Instagram. Scroll to the bottom of the post to watch the video.
The gear I used for all my photos: Nikon D800 with a Nikon 14-24mm and a Nikon 24-85mm. A MeFOTO tripod and a wide angle is a must. I edit all my images with my Lightroom Presets download them and give them a try.
What’s your favorite photo? Can you guess mine?
I shot this a few years back in Naples Florida, and believe it or not it is still one of my favorite photos. I really like going to the West Coast of Florida, it is much more relaxed over there and a lot more peaceful. I often go there to get away from the noise, and ofcouse to take some beautiful sunset photos. You can see my Naples Gallery here.
