fffs16-sfRDTRP4Stacey’s family hit the road and covered hundreds of K’s as they travelled from one end of Victoria to the other during the July school holidays. By the end, she would have been in a state of “camera crazy” after her neverending foto story growing and unfolding  as we see here. The image here is a good start for the next part of the trip following her previous collection just published. Hope you enjoy the trip, and certainly make it even more memorable for her with a POST Of PRAISE.


fffs16-sfrdtrp6. Stacey is to be congratulated to be the first in living history of FF to present a panoramic landscape format. This young girl is getting out there, and is to be appreciated for her commitment. This image using the fence railing to create a leading line concept is certainly worthy of a POST Of PRAISE.


fffs16-sfrdtrp2. Dunkeld’s Mount Sturgeon has featured previously in a FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras foto project  fffs16-sfRDTRP1.with it having been the centre of attention for the Dunkeld Consolidated school Kids With Cameras. Here we see two views of it, as taken by the young photographer. Not long after, it was probably covered in snow for a short time. The main image captures the mountain rising into the clouds creating a dramatic effect like a huge white shroud covering it. This will surely attract a number of POST’s Of PRAISE from Dunkeld.



fffs16-sfrdt3. Clouds and shadows frame this image of the lake in Bendigo. Light is good on the water, and the scene peaceful and serene awaiting people to come and wander through it and enjoy the environment.


fffs16-sfrdtrp5. Water, water everywhere! Road and paddocks covered in it near Bairnsdale in Gippsland. That could be the caption for this image which was typical of many parts of the state in what has been a very “rainy season” down south. This demonstrates seeing something that could be newsworthy.

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.
