(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- The Ocean County Library Toms River Branch presents “People and Places,” an exhibit by award-winning photographer Lucille Rielly, throughout the month of August. The display, which will occupy the 2nd Floor Gallery, consists of color and monochrome candid photos, and will demonstrate her implementation of Photoshop software.
Lucille’s images have captured awards at the Ocean County Artists Guild in Island Heights, the Guild of Creative Arts in Shrewsbury, the Ocean County Camera Club, and the Pennsylvania Center of Photography in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
Lucille traces her love of photography to the late 1990s, when she became a member of the Ocean County Camera Club. She entered competitions, she recalled, hoping for critiques that could help her improve her skills. “I began to use Photoshop for special effects and for adjusting portions of my images,” Lucille said. “When traveling to other places, photographing people in their environments became a particular interest. Many of these photographs are part of the display.”
“People and Places” is open to the public during regular Library operating hours. No registration is necessary to view the exhibit. To learn more, visit the Branch, 101 Washington Street, or call (732) 349-6200.
