Lutherhill Photography Retreat

The first weekend in April, my mom and I took a weekend "off" as Granny and Momma, and headed out to Lutherhill in LaGrange.  Lutherhill is a Lutheran camp that hosts many different retreats throughout the year.

We were excited to get to spend a weekend taking pictures and learning more about our cameras.  We had three awesome teachers who took time from their busy lives to share their knowledge of photography.  They made us practice in manual mode, showed us some cool photography tricks, and taught us how to use the editing software Lightroom.

My mom and I had lots of fun not only taking pictures, but doing the activities Lutherhill has to offer as well.  I did the zip line and played GaGa Ball.  My mom and I both did the BIG swing and archery.  FUN!!

We also went to a neighboring farm to take bluebonnet pictures.  The field was covered in bluebonnets....but for us country girls that see bluebonnets on a daily basis, we were kind of like, "Cool.  We got a few pics.  Can we go now?"

All in all, it was an amazing weekend filled with the Holy Spirit and lots of good times!

So this picture isn't super, but I was taught how to make the light shine like a star rather than a blob of light.
