AFTER ONLY A SHORT TIME BEING A MEMBER OF FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras, INCLUDING A JUNIOR OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHER OLIVIA HAS SHARPENED HER EYE, AND DEVELOPED THE SKILL OF SEARCHING THROUGH THE CAMERA LENS FOR SUPER SHOTS.
This image is JUST CLOWNING AROUND, and looks like he is more miserable than happy. But still, the image is poignant and has one wondering why a clowns face should look unhappy. Perhaps, he’s just tired after a hard days work. Importantly for FOCUS FORCE it provides a thought for a get well card – ideal for a child. What do you think? FOCUS FORCE dedicates the image to the CLOWN DOCTORS who visit sick children in hospitals, bringing loads of laughs and joy to them.
WHATEVER COULD IT BE? I’m sure every FOCUS FORCE viewer would love to know! Olivia as you can see by these images eligible for SUPER SHOT recognition focus on patterned designs. It is interesting to look at the composition style with the focal point being slightly off centre. A great composition aspect in most of these images.
CINDERELLA’S PUMPKIN CARRIAGE AWAITS. Or is it a family of pumpkins hiding in the garden? Not likely, we think! What catches the young eyes is always a treat, and another visual experience for us all to appreciate.
A nest provides a clever frame idea that makes a very impressive picture concept. It’s interesting to ponder that when all of these exhibitis are being planned and designed, do the artists involved ever imagine how viewers will respond to their final creation.
A bed of tulips provides a
palette of colour in Melbourne’s Carlton Gardens during the International Flower & Garden Show. The many hues of the blooms take the eye, and create a beautiful display for all to be delighted by. Can you tell us what country the tulip is the national flower of? In September, FOCUS FORCE will have the Kids With Cameras focus on the tulips of Tesselaars in Melbourne’s Dandenongs, Canberra’s famous FLORIADE, and possibly return to Hobart’s People’s Festival at the Royal Tasmanian Gardens.
A BUSY BEE looks for the honey ingredients amongst the brilliant petal folliage before heading off in another direction towards the hive. It is also obvious that Olivia was just as busy looking for her SUPER SHOT collection amongst all the blooms on show at the MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FLOWER & GARDEN SHOW.
OLIVIA WOULD BE THRILLED TO READ YOUR POST OF PRAISE. C’MON TASSIE LETS HEAR THEM!
Loving the bubbles Go Olivia. Mum.

FOCUS FORCE KWC FRIENDSHIP EXHIBITIONS HAVE TRAVELED THE WORLD PREVIOUSLY INCLUDING TO CHINA, PORTUGAL, ITALY & NEW YORK TO MENTION SOME! These collections have given the opportunity to children in other parts of the globe to see some of our country, and its event on the world stage. Along with that, imagine the thrill, and kudos for those young Kids With Cameras to know that is what their SUPER SHOTS have done!
TOP image. (CL1).Pointing to the sky, the stems of the plant seem to be pointing to the Heavens through the window of the Melbourne Exhibition Buildings in the background. Notice how the shapes of the leaves complement the window design. Once again light plays an integral making this image what it is. Finding a SUPER SHOT is like a game of hide and seek, and Chelsea may have found one!
CENTRE image. (CL2).Looking like a ladies dainty Easter bonnet with pretty lines and patterns of pink.The stunning centre of flower captures the imagination and stimulates the senses. A lovely picture to find.
Bottom Image. (CL3).Windmills waiting for a soothing breeze, the reds and whites of the flowers strike a stirring contrast with the their colours. A photograph that shows good composition and is pleasing to the eye.
