CHELSEA KINCADE SPENT A YEAR TAKING ON THE CHALLENGES THRUST AT HER AS PART OF HER TIME AS A FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras.
Chelsea seen here with a big smile as she takes in the thrill of seeing her image chosen as runner up for the ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO AWARD on show at the 2014 Melbourne International Flower& Garden Show.
See the Easter bonnet and all her ROCKLEY submissions from the 2013 collection May 8, 2013.
The young photographer who became involved in the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras program after submitting works collected at the Garden Show went onto become a constant participant of projects throughout 2013. The self motivated and dedicated girl showed a keen eye and was forever on the search during the year. Providing works for several CAMERA CHALLENGES she found herself having a number of works chosen as SUPER SHOTS. She took her camera out on two occasions when she focused on the TALL SHIPS festival and then this year,s WHITE NIGHT. (March 12)
Apart from her achievements as part of FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras she was recognized for her ability taking out several prizes at the Whittlesea Show. There is no stopping this girls enthusiasm, and she was a proud part of the project successes for the year.
Photography is not planned to be her bag for life, she relies on it for relaxation and developing another skill to hang her on. Studying at Preston Seconday College she has plenty of ambition and goals to aim for. Photography will only be a companion and adjunct to all of them. Below we show a review of some of her successes from the year, and know that you will enjoy viewing them once more. (Nov.13).
Chelsea finished the year as being the second recipient of the FOCUS FORCE JAS RECOGNITION for the year. As the award is provided for, it was given to her for dedication, commitment and achievements for the year. Like last year, she will receive a tripod to help “support” her hobby. Now, no longer part of the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras, we wish her all the best for her future. The mystic full moon could be a aspiring vision for the young girl as she follows her path through the wonderful life that will no doubt be hers.
Rain, rain go away, Chelsea’s image was well found and certainly adds a sea of colour to the roof of Australia On Collins. What amazed Phillip Williams the FOCUS FORCE project coordinator was when he saw the submission recognising the location, and thinking that it had great potential as a SUPER SHOT, leaving it for a Kids With Cameras to find and submit it. Well found Chelsea.
The image of her dog’s eye gives way to lot’s of caption ideas, but most importantly it tells of us her own, and how she lets her imagination ride. The striking detail of the coat and the eye makes you wonder what was in her sights.
Look at the detail here, and the ships name beautifully centered int between the two drawing your eye to it. Down in the bottom right you can see some of the citys tall buildings. This has a touch of devaju for FOCUS FORCE, and if you go to recent posts during March and April, and now leading into June you will see why. (March 12)
And how could we say goodbye to this talented young girl with having a look at one of her images from the Christmas Collection. Once again, she went in search, this time to Melbournes landmark festive season location where it all began at the Boulevarde in Ivanhoe. Although it’s in the heat of summer, the light effect looks like the branches are dusted with snow. Was that she was seeing? (Christmas Eve Dec. 24)
If you want to see more of Chelsea’s excellent work go to the dates in brackets on the website, and you will see more to capture your imagination as it did hers.
FOCUS FORCE invites you to give her a fond farewell by making a POST OF PRAISE, and wishing her well for the future.
