The Hough High School Photography Club hosted an exhibit at the Carolina Art Garden gallery, at Oak Street Mill, 19725 Oak St., Tuesday night to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The student photographers donated all proceeds from photograph sales to the foundation.
The photography club has about 15 student members, club president Aly Weishaar said, but they opened up to the entire Hough student body the opportunity to submit work to the Art Garden show.

“I figured it would get more people out to support the cause,” she said.
Aly, daughter of Bluestone Harbor residents Doug and Amy Weishaar, is a junior at Hough and contributed more than a dozen photographs to the show, taken in different locations in the U.S. and abroad, including Germany, New Zealand, Florida and New York.
“It’s kind of what I lean to when I’m stressed or frustrated,” she said.
But photography is more than just a hobby for her. She recently did an internship with Charlotte photographer Lisa Crates, where she learned a lot about how to shoot for different events and different ways to edit photographs.
The students sold 19 pieces from the Art Garden show and raised $315 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Aly said.
