SHAPES & COLOURS TAKE OLIVIA’S EYE!

Standard

 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.

  RGSJOP14-OR6This 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.

RGSJOPSUB14-OR1 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.

RGSJOP14-OR7  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.    

 RGSJOPSUB14-OR2What looks like  a gathering of baubles, or perhaps; bubbles hanging  from the ceiling is a sheer delight for all to see. Hints of light shining through bring out the excitement of colourful array shades and tones. What can you say?

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.

About focusfor

The FOCUS FORCE photographic workshop program for Kids With Cameras is based in Melbourne, Australia. The projects have gone beyond the Victorian borders, into New South Wales, and Tasmania.Through others including a backpacker it has been provided to children in Thailand, and a teacher in Portugal has inspired children there as well. Apart, from the fun of learning about the camera and developing the skill of taking better photos; the best of which are raised to the status of SUPER SHOTS,the works have been mounted as collections under the banner of the FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP EXHIBITIONS, and sent as gifts of friendship and goodwill to the United States, Italy, Japan, China - others are still being worked on. The program enrciches the children's knowledge, and as a side benefit makes them more aware of their own surroundings,and all that is to value where they live. Then comes the delight of being achievers, and having their self esteem boosted by their successes.The term "kids with cameras" was first used by the program's forerunner; CLICKER - the "club for kids with cameras", and dates back to the mid 1980's. The name change came about as wanting to be more appropriate to the older student group that the program now works with.
