SPRING PROVIDES A TASTE OF TULIPS FOR MADELEINE.

Standard

Madeleine Puli tulip images were amongst the winners in the FOCUS FORCE ROCKLEY EXHIBITION at this year’s Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show. Unfortunately, unable to make it to the TESSELAAR TULIP FESTIVAL, she turned her camera on the bulbs she received as part of her prize package, now in full bloom and this is what she got.

RCK16TT-MP1. This image by Madeleine captures all the beauty of the flower bathed in sunlight highlighting the brilliance of the colour. She has centred her focus on the flower and the leafy background providing a formal setting for the image.

These two images above and below use good lighting for the subject, once more the colour is terrific, but there is too much distraction with the roof lines and petal on the side taking away from the subject itself. Resolve this by changing the depth of field, moving around the subject to limit or eliminate background “rubbish”.

RCK16TT-MP2. This image also has the stunning colour as its major attraction, but unfortunately the interior of the flower is looking a little tired, and past it’s prime. The condition of the flower being chosen as a SUPER SHOT CHOICE requires perfection, not only in the photograph, but also the flower itself. Again, the background of the image makes a good setting. A good effort.

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.
