While leaving the teapot for four minutes, say, allows the tea to draw nicely, I do like to twirl the teapot around, just before pouring into a suitable cup.
What it took:
This week's assignment is to try and come up with an image, of the sort that appears to appear in flickr's explore page. Who knows what the criteria really are? Not me. As evidenced in Scout.
I steadied my camera on a tripod, set the shutter to about one second, and made a couple of exposures: this one, and a monochrome version. This seemed to work. And besides, I wasn't about to ruin a good cuppa. Check the settings here.
