I don’t know why, but sooner or later, every iPhoneographer will take a picture of a tea kettle on a gas stove. Maybe because Chase Jarvis did it. Maybe because it’s easy. Well, it’s not THAT easy. I’ve tried it many times and finally came up with something I like. The kettle is brushed stainless, of course, because just look how many pictures I’ve taken that make use of its unique qualities.
So as obvious and common a subject as it is, it’s fun, accessible, and a must-take shot for any portfolio.
