Announcing Two New Fall Color Tours

In these tough economic times, API is always looking for new cost-effective ways to get photographers out into the field to do what they love: Create images! Due to their combination of lower cost and less time commitment, tours are becoming a more and more popular alternative to the traditional photo workshop.

We are pleased to announce two new tour offerings for 2009: Fall color tours to Letchworth State Park and the Hudson River Valley. Led by Joe LeFevre and Greg Miller, respectively, these tours were chosen for their outstanding fall color potential, as well as their proximity to major metro areas.

Registration is open now for these two great opportunities!

API Partners with Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts

API is pleased to announce a partnership with the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts (ALCA), to bring digital photography workshops to the arts center in Blue Mountain Lake, New York. ALCA is a non-profit organization offering classes, workshops, visual, and performing arts to a local, regional, and national audience.

This summer, two photography workshops led by API instructor Carl Rubino, will be held at the Arts Center. IMPROVING YOUR DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY – “THE BASIC SKILLS” will take place on Monday, July 20th, 9:00am – 5:00pm. In this one-day course, you’ll learn many of the fundamental concepts for making better photographs. DIGITAL SLR PHOTOGRAPHY – BEYOND THE BASICS, a two-day workshop will be held on Wednesday, August 19th, 9:00am-5:00pm & Thursday, August 20th, 6:30am-4:00pm. In this two day workshop, you’ll learn some more advanced principles of composition, learn how to use natural lighting to increase or decrease the intensity of color, to make texture “pop”, to emphasize line or shape, getting the best exposure out of your camera and much more.
