I love figs. When I was shopping at Whole Foods Monday morning, the Kadota Figs, so sweet and oozing their honey-like essence, called to me and I came home with a basket of them. As I savored my first luscious bite, and admired the reddish flesh filled with tiny crunchy seeds, I knew I had to photograph them. The figs were ripe and ready to be eaten, a few bursting apart from the weight of the figs on top of them so I cut a slice from one of the overripe fruits, placed it on a piece of glass with a black background and took a few shots. Then, I devoured my model.
