Project 52, Week 19 {Personal Photography Project}

Sorry I'm late in posting last week's Project 52 image.  I was busy doing a couple of portrait sessions, and then had some editing to do for another photographer.  By the time I actually got around to shooting this, it was Saturday.  And then the weather was just too nice to not stay outside and enjoy it.  🙂

Anyway, the theme for Week 19 is "nature".  This is a large silk moth which measures about 7 inches across.  He was sitting out on our compost pile behind the barn…just hanging out.  LOL  I am in awe of how furry his body is and those long feathery antennae were pretty cool to see.  I've never seen anything like this before.


For those interested in settings, this was shot in natural light at ISO 200, 1/60th sec at F4.5, using the 135L lens, handheld.  I must admit that this is a tad soft on focus…I only was able to get a couple shots of him and none of them were super crisp.  Oh well…maybe next time.  😉

Are you doing your own Project 52 or Project 365/66?  If so, please post a link to your images in the comments below.   🙂

About Kim Hill

I’m passionate about my work and helping women feel comfortable in front of my lens. I want women to feel confident and sexy regardless of age or size. All women are beautiful and I'm here to help them see the beauty in themselves and the boudoir photographic experience is one step in that direction. I am dedicated to bringing a high-quality experience to the boudoir portrait session. My goal is to offer a fun yet relaxing environment where a woman can let down her guard, allowing that inner sparkle to shine. I’ve been a photographer for more than 25 years now. I started as a young child with my parents' 110 film camera, moved on to study photography in college, interned with a wedding photographer for a couple of years and then struck out on my own. I've been doing general portraits since 1998 and boudoir work since 2009. In addition to boudoir, I also offer high school senior portraits, fashion inspired sessions, and business executive head shots.
