Here I placed a light above and to the right of the teapot pot angled down, and placed a white card on the other side to reflect light back in the picture (hence the shadow in the middle). I let all the rest of the highlights and shadows stay as they fell. You can see a window etc. The idea was to give the post some life, a more elaborate effort would be needed to avoid all shadow and highlights and it might be very boring.
