Retreating Away with Other Wonderful Creatives

2013 brought about many wonderful things. One of them was the 2nd Annual Photography Retreat hosted by Salem Digital Photo Group.

This year's attendance almost tripled the first year's event and everything executed beautifully. We started the weekend on the beach for Sunset on Friday night.

Then we moved to the lake for some late night starry sky shooting.
We awoke Saturday morning to a beautiful morning sunrise shoot followed by some yummy breakfast.

We moved to shooting the myriad of species of mushrooms sprouting up all over the camp.

Lunch came and then naps ensued for some, like me.

Then came more shooting and post processing.

Dinner came and we ate like kings and then our second sunset of the weekend was captured.

We ended the day with a stunning slideshow of wonderful works attendees had created.

Some of us then snuck out at night to hit the beach for some long exposure on the night sky. The stars shone bright that night.

Sunday morning came early. But many captured sunrise before breakfast.

We ate breakfast packed up our gear and headed home.

It was a truly amazing weekend with some truly amazing people willing to help, share and create.

I can't wait for next year. It is truly an amazing weekend to spend with some amazing friends.
I want to close this post by thanking our gracious hosts at Camp Magruder, Steve (Camp Director) and Amy (Events Coordinator) for making our stay a special weekend for all involved. These two people rock it like no other. And of course the cooks of camp... for without them, our bellies would not have been full. :) Thank you to everyone that made this event a huge success.
