The Vernon Township Historical Society held its first photography exhibit on April 12 and 13.

Nearly 30 Vernon Township High School photography students and their teacher, Terry Sabia, showcased their works in the “Vernon Through the Years” photography exhibit.

Briana D’Angelo won the digital category for her color photograph of the Appalachian Trail. Samantha Scrudato took first place for her own version of the Appalachian Trail in her double exposure photograph entitled “Follow Your Heart,” which she took with 35mm film and developed and printed herself.

Student Maggie Mohr took second place for her black and white, hand-colored, 35mm photograph entitled “Dreaming of Spring,” which she developed and printed. Rebecca Renna’s third-Place photograph entitled “The Future Is Bright, was a 35mm print, which she developed and printed.

In the adult category, Everett J. Paladini won overall Best In Show for his surreal Infrared photograph, “Landscape,” developed and printed by the artist in his darkroom. Leesa Beckmann won first place in the digital category for her “Leaf Frog.”

Other winners in the Adult category were Dennis Dalelio, second Place for his digital photograph “Black Creek Site” and Doug Castellana, third place for his digital photograph, “Maple In the Mist.” The winning photographs and others can be seen at the Historical Society’s website at www.vernonhistoricalsociety.com.

Rob Haley, a 25-year New York City based director of photography, still photographer, and Cinematographer, judged the exhibit. Haley’s numerous awards throughout his career include best cinematographer for a feature film.

The Vernon Township Historical Society, Vernon Township High School Photography Department and their teacher Terry Sabia, and Highland Lakes photography teacher Dennis Dalelio sponsored the exhibit.
