tsck13-6 Chelsea Kincade was the only one to take up the challenge and successfully complete the task. Her day in Wiilamstown saw a collection of images of the tall ships that had gathered from around the world. Here we are going to tease you with just one  that excludes the ships, but focuses on one of Melbourne’s most breathtaking views. FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras have captured the city skyline across the waters of Hobsons bay many times, but never before at night.Previous SUPER SHOT images from the shoreline have been included in FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP EXHIBITIONS that have been sent to Italy, Boston and Osaka. In the case of the Japanese collection, a small album was delivered to the sister city aboard one of the competitors in the Melbourne to Osaka yacht race. Chelsea is to be congratulated on her effort, and her reward is in the collection of photos she has taken. You will get to see them soon.

Note the moody effect captured by the reflections on the ripples as the young photographer gets down low and shoots across the surface. A tried but often excellent result.

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.
