Perspectives in Photography

By: Charla Cole/Instructional Paraprofessional

On a cold brisk morning, a group of students were fortunate enough to take part in a photography trip organized by Mrs.Larosa. With cameras in tow, we traveled to the beaches of Monmouth County. The views were absolutely beautiful and that alone made for some amazing pictures. While the typical photos ocean landscape were expected and breathtaking,each student also took photos from their own personal perspective, which made them very unique. From graffiti art on the boardwalk, an empty bottle of perfume in the sand, or even a pair of abandoned shoes, the art of  photography is definitely in the eye of the beholder. We went to several locations along the shore which included the beaches of Belmar, Avon, Ocean Grove, and the beautifully revived Asbury Park.

The highlight of the trip was going inside the historical Paramount Theater in Asbury, where we got to explore both levels. We had the run of the place and took some really great photos there. While on the way back to the school, we stopped for some well deserved hot chocolate! Brrr! Overall, it was a successful trip and as you can see from the pictures above, we have some very talented young photographers here at Ocean Academy.


Did You Know: Select images captured by our students during this trip will be framed and featured in the upcoming Art and Soul Brunch.
