An eclectic collection of photography showcasing the talents of the members of Newbridge Camera Club has opened at Olde Bridge Gallery in Newbridge.

A diverse collection of images chosen by members of the club, including macros, still life, nature, wildlife, landscapes, and travel images are now on display at the gallery.

Everybody sees things a little bit differently and everyone's photography is different and shaped by their life experiences.

This is represented in a varied collection of images.

John Oborn's Strawberry Wine is one of the images on display at the exhibition.

The display features 28 framed images from seven club members and is the first exhibition for the club that was established over 12 months ago and battled through Covid with zoom meetings when unable to meet face to face.

Wendy Smith founding member of the club said the images are objects, ideas and impressions that members noticed and photographed.

"There are things that people might fail to see in the chaos of their daily lives, but often when you close in on the details of these common items with a camera, the ordinary becomes magical," she said.

The club meets at the Newbridge Hall every first Tuesday and discuss a technical aspect of photography as well as check out our member's images produced for our monthly challenge.

There is always something to learn.

We are planning some more in-depth workshops in 2021.

New members are most welcome.

Visitors are welcome to check out the exhibition which has something for everyone at the Gallery.

Gallery hours are from 10am to 4pm Saturdays and Sundays and the exhibition will continue until the end of January.
