As readers of Schroon Laker know, we love sharing stunning images taken here in our own backyards and beyond, capturing the ‘Dacks in all four of her surprising seasons of light and color.

And there’s no shortage of wonderful images to be had – and for a lot of us getting them is as  easy as pulling out our smart phones.

If you are looking at ways to take your snapshots to the next level, there’s a free photography workshop next Tuesday (November 4th) in Ticonderoga, given by Nancy Carter. Her presentation is called “A Sense of Place: Photographing the Adirondacks”.

Nancy will encourage you to photograph from a sense of place -- your heart -- and not worry about the so called rules of photography. Nancy will use her work and other locals, as well as showing the using the images of Carl Heilman II and Nathan Farb.

This event is free, co-sponsored by the Ticonderoga Area Cultural Arts Initiative, and is made possible in par, by the Essex County Arts Council CAP Grant, supported by the Essex County Board of Supervisors.

Where and When: Tuesday, November 4th @ 7pm. The Ti Arts Downtown Gallery, 119 Montcalm Street, Ticonderoga.
