67 - Form, Texture, and Tone
Today's photo subject is a vase that the wife and I got in Ruidoso, NM many years ago. It occurred to me while looking around for subject matter that it might make a cool photo because of its graceful curves, mixed with the overlaid textures of soft feathers and crackled glaze. I lit this one with a single, small softbox on the left-hand side of the photo, trying to emphasize depth and shape. You can see the reflection of the softbox on the vase. I added a bit of fill light by reflecting some of the light onto the other side of the vase using a piece of white cardboard.
