Spotlight on Ben Venezio

Ben’s work is very inspiring to anyone who holds a camera! He is passionate about his work and willing to discuss his techniques. His awards, winning top image in the New Jersey Federation of Camera Clubs 12 times and being past president of the Cranford/Milburn Camera Club and later President of the Camera Naturalist Club in Basking Ridge, speaks to his dedicated professionalism. He has also judged numerous photography contests over the years including such clubs as the Monmouth County Camera Club, and the Staten Island Camera Club. He has also taught classes for Essex County Nature Photographers.

On March 6th I had the opportunity to meet him at an intimate reception in our gallery. He talked with us about the topics that inspire his photographs, how he takes them, and that what you see is what was there, no Photoshop “tricks” used! It was only till a few years back that he was convinced to go digital, and I must say they are just a stunning as the printed from film ones.

So stop down and see the exhibit during the month of April. You’ll be delighted.

The Gallery is back with a lovely photography exhibit by Ben Venezio . If you love the photographs posted to our website, you’ll definitely be blown away by a room full! As I wrote in my blog post Virtual Galleries there is no substitute for seeing artwork up close instead of on a small computer screen. 

On Wednesday, March 6, from 6 to 8 p.m we will have a meet the artist reception in the Gallery. Do stop by and talk to him about his photographs. If you are a photographer or just a photography buff, this is your chance to ask him how he creates such spectacular photos.
