More breaking ground for FOCUS FORCE is another Kids With Cameras. This time being the first to submit from north in sunny Queensland. Rose B was a visitor to the Garden Show, and stopped by the ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION and became enthused. Here is her collection with the hope that some will it make for the 2017 exhibition. FOCUS FORCE is glad she did, and we know you will enjoy looking at them. So, come on show her some encouragement with a share of POST Of PRAISE.


ff-rck17-rb2.The song goes; “But I see your true colors shining through, I see your true colors”, and this what this image is all about with it’s different shades of pink and highlights. A delightful shot to commence Rose’s collection. FOCUS FORCE is sure many will agree by making a POST Of PRAISE.


ff-rck17-rb6. As you look at the detail of the flower petals, and then your eye will “BEE” amazed by the insect  going out about it’s work, oblivious of the ‘hive” of activity around it. The light on the wings accentuating their fine transparency. It’s large bulbous eyes staring down the photographer A shot like this can’t go by without a POST Of PRAISE


ff-rck17-rb5. The FOCUS FORCE phrase “get down n dirty” immediately come to mind when you look at this image. People around the young girl would have been wondering what she was doing. But, when you look at this you realize what a camera challenge is all about. An image that reflects the turning of the season to Autumn.


ff-rck17-rb1. A keen photographer has a keen eye, always looking for something to take the viewers eye. It’s also about being quick with the finger to capture the moment. This image  fits neatly into the category of ZOOPER ZOOPIC’s. Say well done to Rose with a POST Of PRAISE


ff-rck17-rb3. The purity of the white petals are lovely frame for the flowers center with it’s touches of pink and the yellow  anthers. The softness of the petal is reflected in the image. A POST Of PRAISE will add a smile to her face as well.


ff-rck17-rb7.  This is an image of the orange and the green and is an interesting contrast to Rose’s others shown here. The colour is striking and eyecatching and certainly worthy of consideration for a POST Of PRAISE.

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.

    Understanding the importance of bees to our planet is critical – capturing images of them magical.

    The fact that she has found beauty even in the sometimes most overlooked locations is a sign of an observant child.
