Blood Oranges on a vintage cement background

Blood Oranges on a vintage cement background with leaf accents. I am challenging myself to do a shoot a week in my home studio and am starting with simple things like ingredients or highlighting an item like these oranges.

When I was doing my weekly grocery shopping I was looking for a bright fruit or vegetable to use for this shoot. I wanted to photograph something that was a more unique food item so when I saw these oranges I decided to give them a try. When started to stylize the shoot I loved the bright red juicy color so I went with a darker background with the rustic cement backdrop to get a dark and moody feel. Using only natural window light I photographed overhead top down for a flat lay image.
