I found this interesting tea pot and I was fascinated by the shape. An image formed in my mind and I set out to bring that image to life. I knew that there could be an interesting play of shadows and light. It was mid afternoon and the sunlight was still harsh so I had to take this one well inside. Once I did there was nto much ambient light to play with so I had to bump up the ISO to 800. The light was coming in through a large window and I made sure the handle pointed towards the light. Then it was a matter of careful exposure. I made one mistake though, I should have also taken a picture with the snout facing towards the light.
During post processing I decided to push the contrast to the extreme which resulted in loss of details particularly in the darker areas. I think it works….
