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.

For information and to register for the workshops, visit www.adirondackarts.org or call 518-352-7715. The Arts Center is open September – June: Tuesday-Saturday 10am-4pm. July and August: Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm, Sunday 12 noon – 4pm
