Re: glossy ceramic image

>John has covered about everything- glossy surfaces are a PITA! One thing that give shooters the most control is limiting the number of light sources- I use only 1 if possible, then fill shadows with diffused(white) bounce cards. This limits the number of specular highlights to 1, and that is necessary to show that the surface is actually shiny. I could tell some horror storys about assignments to shoot shiny subjects!!
