WOWH14BC-1. Benjamin’s first image looks like a corn on the cob. One of two  images of the flower this has been chosen to lead off because of its striking treatment of the subject against the blue sky. Worthy of a POST Of PRAISE.

WOWH14BC-2.Looking across the yellow of this bush in flower into the distance illustrates the location and the background provides a concept of this part of the west for the viewer to relate to.wowh14bc-9WOWH14BC-3. Peering up the stem of the plant into “tentacles” of the pink flower creates a eye-catching image that helps you understand the beauty of Spring in the Wests outback. This image demonstrates that Benjamin knows how to make the most of his camera and his subject.

WOWH14BC-4.This one lone flower is strategically placed to provide a pleasing balance in composition, and would make lovely centre piece on any wall. Note light and shadows of the image.

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.
