Tea Pots (Two Photographs)

One thing that usually stops people from doing artificial light photography is fighting specular highlights (fancy name for bright spots). Highlights can occur even on non-reflective objects in some situations. Specular highlights may in fact be a good thing in some cases, helping to define the object. But most of the time annoying highlights are reduced or removed by taking the photograph from an angle that is not directly impacted by reflection plus using a lot of diffusion of the light (shower curtain, lite panel, soft box, bounce lighting off a wall or ceiling etc). In this case the teapots were done in what is known as low key light (dark). There is a faint light hitting the background for separation.
