Photographing pottery using daylight

Window light to bring out the gleam in pottery

The window light works for gentle, directional light but the polysterene reflector does two important things.  

1. It reduces the shadow caused by the window light.
2. A reflection of the polystyrene square in the glaze of the pottery lends a gentle luminosity to the pottery.

We are starting to have more sunlight now.   Make the most.
