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.
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! 😉 📷
