Project 52, Week 28 {Personal Photography Project}

Last week's theme was "Light".  Since the 4th of July holiday was this week, I knew that I'd be taking photos of the fireworks on Saturday so that's why I'm late in posting.  Every year, my sister and BIL put on quite a show and this year's was pretty awesome.  The kids used the ultra long sparklers while we waited for dusk to arrive.  And then the show began.  I had a heck of a time getting shots of the fireworks…my camera does not like to focus in the dark so I set it on "infinity" and hoped for the best.  I had to experiment quite a bit with the exposure and finally got a few decent looking shots right near the end of the show.

For those interested in camera settings, I shot this handheld using my Canon 24-70L at 25mm, ISO 400, 1/20 at F2.8.

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.
