I will work on that, but it was very simple, camera on same hight as vase looking directly at it, with black cloth under and all around the setup (vase, camera, lights). I tried putting between 1 and 3 lights in just about all conceivable positions with no luck. The polariser definitely helped with one light at a time, mainly as point light sources. Cheers

Thanks for your answer. Being a spherical base base, the only time the lights didnt produce specular reflections via the vase was having the lights behind the vase. But this meant the front of the vase wasn't lit! I used back cloth surrounding the vase in all directions to fix the problem of spill reflections from walls etc. I think I might investigate GIMP's scripting capabilities so I can automate stitching of two or three photos with one light in two or three positions for items arranged in identical ways, I will report back on results, might be a while lol. Any other ideas are very welcome
