    I don't own any lights and don't have a studio. I'm an amateur and haven't had any training in those areas. My training from Fred Picker consisted of walking very slowly around cemeteries, barns and river beds, using a viewing filter with attention to precise camera placement. I suspect he got the same training from Ansel and passed it along intact.

    In my house there's a small pantry with a glass door nearby. That's where my wife stores tea pots, dinner ware, a large ceramic pitcher, etc. On snowy days I have found that the light is very nice for this sort of subject: her pantry becomes my "studio".

    Everything we do is staged and contrived. In the sense that I chose the camera placement, the teapot photo was staged too - but for me it was a discovery, no different than if I had been climbing over rocks at the beach and stumbled upon a promising arrangement.
    I think I could appreciate the tones and curves more if the outside reflections were less defined and focused; if you altered the highlight with a silk, either inside to remove or outside to keep the window panes.

    I can see the lines much more clearly and to me this is approaching feminine. I been thinkin about this alot. I love the that you left the table reflection in, and the way it curls around to the handle, it's almost "pregnant" with seduction. I love the little chiaroscuro at the focal point and the way the rim echos the curve of a woman's hips and thighs.

    Edit: I want to substitute the word "intimacy" for "seduction".

    I love macro and close distance images and I love night time long exposure lighting, this is a crap image but I kind of like it for some reason, I guess I just love the details of the leaves.
