Frank Veronsky is an editorial and commercial photographer who lived in New York City for over 20 years. He recently moved to Belle Meade, NJ and is teaching both beginner and advanced workshops. I found out about the workshop through his photo group on Meetup. The meetup group is sponsored by the Digital Photo Academy. I’m fortunate to live a few miles from Frank’s stdio and decided to take the Workshop, Composition in the Field.

Frank’s studio is a converted barn at the back of his property in the historic Harlingen section of Montgomery Township. Frank and his wife moved here with their kids to be closer to family. The studio is clean and well lit but Frank’s backyard provided the subject matter for the day’s workshop.

It rained that morning and the air and soil were still damp and a little cold. The lighting changed constantly as the clouds moved across the sun.
