Please join the Hanson Park Conservancy on Tuesday, January 16th at 7:30 PM at the Cranford Community Center for the presentation, “The Art of Flower and Garden Photography” with photographer, Brien Szabo. Mr. Szabo will show how anyone can take great pictures with any kind of camera, from a phone to a simple point and shoot, to an expensive DSLR. He will also go over a variety of simple camera settings so that you can manipulate the effectiveness of shots to create more powerful and dynamic images. And lastly, he will show how you can incorporate four composition techniques to better frame out your favorite garden and flower subjects so that you will be proud to print and hang them in your home or enter them into competitions.

For over twenty years, Brien Szabo has shared his passion for photography with clubs, libraries, workshops, schools, senior centers and garden expos.  He has been published in various magazines including Adirondack Life, NJ Monthly, Horticulture Magazine, among others.  For more information or to view some of Mr. Szabo’s photography, please go to
