Lots of Fun and Learning in Lake Placid

This past weekend was our second annual workshop in partnership with Adirondack Life Magazine. We had beautiful, productive weather in Lake Placid for nearly the entire time. During the weekend API Instructors Mark Bowie, Joe LeFevre and John Radigan discussed the latest technologies and techniques, while magazine folks Annie Stoltie and Kelly Hofschneider provided insight into the workings of the publishing business and specific needs of Adirondack Life. We kicked it all off with an introductory view of the area and its many aspects with API's John DiGiacomo and a wonderful look at the magazine over the years from Betsy Folwell.

We had a great group of photographers participating, with lots of original insights and willingness to share their experiences. The viewing and critique of images that ended the weekend turned up some real gems! This year's field trips took advantage of the mist (and mystery) created by warm days and cool nighttime temperatures. On Friday night we were once again able to take advantage of the shooting opportunities from the roof of Northwoods Inn, where we were hosted graciously by the Smith family.

We can't wait to do this again next year!
