Photography 101: Edge

This is my last make-up post for Photography 101:  Edge.  (Sniff).  We’re supposed to photograph “an edge — a straight line, a narrow ridge, a precipice.”

My edge isn’t straight, but it’s an edge nonetheless.

I took this photo yesterday while on a tour at A. Smith Bowman Distillery in Fredericksburg, Virginia.  It’s an old copper distiller’s pot (a huge pot, the top edge was as tall as me!).  I love to take photos of pieces of things.  There were some Christmas lights hanging on the wall behind the old copper pot, and I just thought it was a neat opportunity for a photo.  So my family waited patiently (more or less) for me to finish my artsy-fartsy photo moment.


Nikon D800
ISO 800 | 70mm | f/2.8 | 1/60 sec

I was really wishing I had a tripod for this photo because the light inside the distillery was pretty bad.  Oh well.  We overcome and adapt, right?

I did it . . . I finished!  Honestly, I’m really going to miss this.  I might have to start making up my own themes so I can keep posting!  (Luckily, WordPress hosts a Weekly Photo Challenge, so I think I will jump into that next).

Bonus:  We’re supposed to put together a wrap-up post/gallery of our favorite Photography 101 photos, so you have that to look forward to!  😉 📷



  1. Or…you could jump in the B&W Challenge since I just invited you. 🙂 Check out my post today for deets. No pressure, just if you want to. Merry Christmas!
