How to Compose a Better Picture: Talk at Drake House today

One approach is 'hot spots' based on the ancient Greek
'golden ratio'. (See The Wonder of Light website here.)
Plainfield's Drake House Museum is hosting an interesting program this afternoon: "How to Compose a Better Picture".

Whether you are a painter or a photographer, composition is important to make your image attractive and memorable. And it always pays to get some new insights into how to do it better.

The talk is being given by photographer Dorothy Bellew, whose exhibit "Colorful Season" is currently on display in the museum's gallery. Bellew, a lifelong South Plainfield resident, is a graduate of Mt. Saint Mary's Academy and The Catholic University of America.

The program is free and open to the public. It begins at 2:00 PM in the gallery on the museum's second floor.

The Drake House Museum at 602 West Front Street (at the foot of Plainfield Avenue) is open to the public Sunday afternoons from 2:00 - 4:00 PM, and at other times by appointment. For more information, call (908) 755-5831 or visit the website at
