ANOTHER FROM A FIRST TIMER SHOWS WHAT SHE’S MADE OF WHEN IT COMES TO A CAMERA IN HER HAND WITH THIS MINI COLLECTION. ONLY 11 YEARS OLD AND NEVER SUBMITTED PHOTOS FOR A COMPETITION BEFORE SHE INVITES YOU TO TAKE A BROWSE OVER HER SUBMISSIONS. And of course she would be only too happy to see your POSTS OF PRAISE.
Madeleine is a grade 6 student in Taylors Lakes, and of course like all Kids With Cameras loves to take photos. But, when she got to the MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FLOWER & GARDEN SHOW, and loooked at the FOCUS FORCE ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION she was inspired to take a NEW DIRECTION in all her phototaking tasks. We hope that will see more of her work throughout the year, and she can watch her REWARD POINTS grow too.
STRIKING RED (RGS15MP1) is what you might call this, and FOCUS FORCE has entered this in the FLEUR AWARD category for the best close up. All you can say is the colour hits you in the eye and provides a grand catcher for the inner parts of the flower. Once again, the background is soft and out of focus so as not to distract from the focal image.
How many times does FOCUS FORCE see the trunk of a tree (RGS15MP2) reaching into the sky emphasizing its rightful place in the Carlton Gardens. Each year painstaking effort is put into protecting these majestic old trees that are part of the gardens heritage . Here Madeleine preserves the tree for posterity with the camera. Again, we see how the camera goes from being out of focus to becoming sharper as it moves up the tree. Notice how the detail becomes finer as it moves further away from the lens.
A white daisy( (RGS15MP3) ) caught Madeleine’s eye and she got it front and centre making a simple but attractive image. The background muted out of focus places more emphasis on the flower eliminating all the distractions from her photo. Simply, the flower is her focus and subject and a pure choice for the RECUSU category.
