‘Apples and Oranges’
Created in Blender
Anyone can do this. The apples and oranges are all photogrammetric, as well as the Costa Rican rosewood mug and the natural stone columns in the background. The columns came from a strip mall nearby.
The Rose of Sharon was modeled using leaves and petals of plants in my back yard and ‘The Grove’ addon.
Greg Zaal, if he were to see this, would recognize his wonderful HDRI image, which I used straight out of the box. No back plates. And such wonderful shadows!

Filmic, Denoise and principled shader are astounding.
