The New Brunswick Free Public Library presents its 12th Annual Photography Contest and Exhibit in 2019! The theme this year is "Love and Unity." The contest submission form and more information can be found at www.nbfpl.org/photocontest. (Deadline for contest submission is May 10th, 2019.) Along with the contest, the library offers free photography workshops presented by professional photographers. All three workshops will be held in the library's Carl T. Valenti Community Room. On this evening, the workshop will be "Expanding Your Approach to Landscape" led by professional photographer & author Joel Simpson.
Whether you like to photograph in your backyard or on your exotic travels, New Jersey native Joel Simpson can show you how to make your landscapes stronger, really wow your friends, and make great wall art (and gifts!). Joel has just released his book of world-wide geological photography, Earthforms: Intimate Portraits of Our Planet, which contains his best natural scenic photographs from the past 15 years. He'll show you the photographs in the book, explain why he chose them (among the 1000s he took), what he had to do to capture them, and how he modified them on his computer to make compelling art works.
Time will be allotted for Q&A at each workshop, so bring your ideas and questions! To attend any of these programs, please register at the library’s Reference Desk, or call 732-745-5108, ext 20.
Grant funding has been provided by the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders through a grant provided by New Jersey State Council on the Arts / Department of State.
