on hold for Tink


(elephant teaset for Tink to think about)
My wife asks: 'why is the spout pointing out, why did you photograph it this way...' and I don't have an answer. I am not a photographer, I just set things up. Actually, I am a terrible photographer. Had you heard you're supposed to point teapot spouts in towards the cups? Are people born knowing these things?
Anyway, the first teapot Tink wanted had a slight flaw, this one is superb, and lucky Tink, I am throwing in 2 matching cups.

teapots are supposed to face the cups!!???

I don't see that in the "manual" anywhere!

very nice btw and I like the teapot looking like it's blowing its own horn to the world! "HEY LOOK AT ME!"

She's got a point, Gary. The spout is such a strong shape that the viewer's eye will follow wherever it's pointing. While it's nice to lead the eye toward your picture, it's extra work to have to look back at the cups. Wow, I still remember my layout and design stuff from college .. :-D

Greg said...

ummm.... so there. ?

I was thinking the teacup was leading the charge. Towards the cookies, perhaps?
