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.
