Victoria B and family visited the Victorian holiday location by the sea during the holidays. She provides us with a collection of images that show another side of the seaside town. From the waters edge, you turn to look up at the gum covered slopes of the Otway ranges which were threatened with a raging bushfire that devastated much of the bushland to the west of the tourist town, and indeed for a time threatened it. Victoria has captured images that show the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere illustrating it is truly a place for all seasons. Give Victoria something to screech about with a POST Of PRAISE


fffs16-lornevb25. During the winter holidays my family and I went along the Great Ocean Road to Lorne for a few days. Being winter the sky was filled with beautiful colors and the water at the beach gave me opportunities for great photos. Lorne is a great place for anyone who loves the beach and the outdoors. With Lorne’s wide spreading beach it’s a hot spot for surfers.  Lorne is home to many kinds of wildlife including lot’s of cheeky cockatoos .  Here is the perfect opportunity to make Victoria feel cocky with a POST Of PRAISE


fffs16-lornevb21. Creative constructions make for a creative photograph. Being able to combine talents shows a flair that will see many interesting works in this young girls portfolio Lovely scene with constructive composition. An obvious image to make a POST Of PRAISE.


fffs16-lornevb30. The days done as these two surfers wade from the water. The photo tells it’s own story as you look at the clear blue sky, white puffy clouds and very little in the way of waves. So, theses guys said that’s it for the day, only to wait for another. That’s what surfin’s all about – and this photo tells the story.


fffs16-lornevb8 Still waters provide a striking canvas for the reflections of the clouds and the sky. Choosing such an image provides one of tranquility and serenity, allowing the eye to take it all in.


fffs16-lornevb2. This image using a shining ray of light adds impact to the shot bringing out fantastic highlights on the water. Add a ray of glory to Victoria’s work with your own 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.
