A “CLOSE” DECISION SOON TO BE ANNOUNCED FOR THE FOF KIDze COLLECTION.

Standard

FOUR SLEEPS TO THE SHIP’S SIREN SOUNDS.

The day was bright and warm with the sun shining brightly on the subject. In this collection the Minister For Education was given the task of making the CHOICE of the OVEALL BEST for the reception Kids With Cameras to year 4. Many of them had never used the camera for a project like this before. They worked diligently, responding to suggestions, and obviously taking in what they had heard and learned in the lead up workshops. One point being to keep the horizon on an even keel; showing here that they had taken notice. The aspiring young Kids With Cameras will be looking forward anxiously to the Hon, Susan Close’s decision on Friday. Well done.

This image adds a touch of the floral aspect of the island together with the ship in the background. As recalled, in many cases when looking for a SUPER SHOT; it requires a great deal and effort. This shot taken from down low was a challenge that has paid off in finding a different perspective.

Another image that for this purpose required the young photographer to get down and sandy so that could shoot across the plants, sand and water to the pier and Queen Victoria in the distance. Shows the environment of Penneshaw against a lightly clouded sky.

A “tyred” look towards the Queen Victoria as she remains at anchor off shore at Penneshaw. Taken from the carpark, and using the retaining wall for effect this was a “game” shot to aim for. Let’s see soon whether it pays off.

FOF QV16SB-TWR-5 J1

This group, like another in the day had the opportunity to walk on the beach and along the foreshore taking in the views looking for potential SUPER SHOTS. This one like the previous was an exercise in getting down low. The water has been used effectively and the composition is splendid. When you realize the ages of some of these Kids With Cameras the results are even more impressive.

Another image showing the rocks to add drama to the view. A well composed shot that shows the ship, and importantly for us it’s proximity to the land on the day. It was a challenging day with the ship lying off the beach, and every piece of imagination had to be used to find ways of looking something different.

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.
