From Toast to Trophies! The final official day of Roots 2011 certainly did not disappoint. The Thursday of Roots is always such a bittersweet day with the amazing culmination of the week's learning and shooting coming to a head at the evening's slideshows. Our sponsors this year were incredibly gracious and we adore them and thank them for their impeccable support. Mad props.

Audra! Our stalwart chef extraordinaire for the week finally got to kick up her feet and relax for a little bit while preparations were being made for the evening's feast.
Rachel, Tracey, and Kelly put some finishing touches on their presentations for the evening. See that fan rocking in the background? Yeah. It was that kind of a week. AC is for wimps.
Across the way in the bunkhouse Whitney is leafing through some last minute details of her presentation piece... I mean, seriously, how could you not smile with an assignment like hers :]
Guests, past participants, assignment subjects, and family joined in together for our presentations out on the porch in the amazing summer evening
and what would Thursday night be without the annual Chubby Bunny championship. Names get engraved on the trophy... added to the list of champions, Jeff. Way to go, man. You can stuff more marshmallows in your mouth then all the rest of us. A skill that will no doubt prove useful in your photographic explorations.
Stay tuned for a full reflective recap, links to student slideshows, and the workshop slideshow!
Thanks, Eric, for blogging the experience for us!
