Ellen Rubinstein - Self-Taught Photographer and Artist

Ellen has always played with art in one form or another, including sketching, watercolor, and photography, with a focus on nature. It was the advent of digital photography, with its immediate feedback of the image, and the ability to edit them, which prompted her to further explore photography. Ellen is self-taught, learning through experience and self-study about the technical aspects of photography. She is inspired by the work of Ansel Adams.

She has exhibited at Monmouth Museum, Guild of Creative Art, Art Alliance of Monmouth County, and several solo exhibits at Monmouth County libraries, including Headquarters in Manalapan, the Eastern Branch, Wall Township, and Colts Neck, as well as the Middletown Township Library. She has also received an honorable mention from the Monmouth Museum.

Throughout her life, Ellen has been inspired to capture fragments of the beauty of nature by means of photography.

“My images reflect the natural peace surrounding us, focusing on light and form,” Ellen says. “Nature is continually presenting us with visually striking moments which will never be repeated. It is our challenge to notice, appreciate, and preserve them.”

Ellen edits her images using digital editing tools such as cropping and contrasting, to ensure she is presenting the essence of what inspired her to take the photograph.
