On Tuesday, Nov. 28, 29 members of Photo Club visited Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey. Attendees viewed and photographed the 270 sculptures scattered across the 42 landscaped acres of the park.

This is the first of two trips that Photo Club will take this year. Members are chosen to attend based on participation in the club, said Photo Club president and senior Grace Maloney of Middletown.

In past years, the club took trips to the Photoshop World Conference, the International Center for Photography in New York and, most often, Grounds For Sculpture, said technology teacher and Photo Club adviser Maryanne Rodriguez.

For many students, this was not their first time visiting the grounds. Photo Club council member and junior Alyssa Rasp of Hazlet has walked the sculpture park once before.

“Most of the exhibits remain the same, however, there were a couple new ones that were fun to see,” Rasp said. “It really gets people to get out of their comfort zones and take their cameras and go to shoot things that they normally wouldn’t be able to.”

Students on the trip experimented with their cameras and composition styles throughout the day as they photographed the grounds. Maloney said she thinks the trip is an important learning experience.

“It gives members a great opportunity to take pictures in a new environment and learn how to utilize different settings and camera functions,” Maloney said.
