Camera club create 'visually strong' exhibition

THE main exhibition room at Naracoorte Art Gallery was packed with people for the opening of the Naracoorte Camera Club photographic exhibition on Friday night.

The exhibition will hang throughout May and will attract great interest if the opening night was any indication.

New camera club president Tony Lees said the club was very encouraged by the turnout and thrilled with feedback about the quality of works on display.

"I would say there were more people there than last year and the vibe and feedback was that it was well received," he said.

"The variety of subject matter worked well together and made it visually strong.

"I believe we had 60 prints this year compared with 54 last year."

Most of the photographs on display were for sale, and at least two were sold on the night.

Mr Lees said there might be some minor alterations to the format in future, such as reducing the number of photographs on display, but the club was keen to continue having an annual exhibition.

The camera club's next meeting will be at historic Struan House at 7pm next Wednesday, where members will be doing another painting with light session. Mr Lees said it promised to be an interesting location.

Members who have high powered portable light/torches are asked to bring them along, as well as a tripod.

Challenge for the month is "Depth of Field" and members should bring along their entries.
