A second burst of blooms found by Nadia K’s camera takes our eye, as it did hers with this collection. One of the most important camera clue conditions is the 4th P for perfection. Not only in the photograph;but also the flower for which she found to live up to the rule. Certainly, the are perfect for a POST Of PRAISE

 ffrck18gs-nk19-2. Understanding the camera and its capabilities is an important aspect working with it to gain the best results. This image, like many of Nadias has the effect of blowing the background out, and emphasizing the foreground and the main part of the subject. FF will concentrate in these images suggesting when it would have been better to go closer and cut out the background.

ffrck18gs-nk23-7. Here we go on a magical mystery look with the peacock seen against a mystical backdrop and the tail trailing across it. Well balanced composition with the subject placed to left side, and with the added effect  looking up in a portrait format. Even the couple of leaves in the bottom corner work! A good choice for the TONY IMAGINE category.

ffrck18gs-nk21-2.Here is a great story for the FLEUR category. But, FF looks at it ;and thinks if only the image was the “head” and the huge white ears how fascinating the end result would have been. Watch for more of this shot in the future.

ffrck18gs-nk15-1. It is can be fascinating what takes photographers eye, and this has potential. But, FF suggests that the approach should have been closer; focusing perhaps on a globe with the dried matted vine being a background to the shot.

ffrck18gs-nk28-9. The blue ribbon CHOICE is the OITHONIA category and this buttercup coloured flower takes the cake as Nadias submission. Strong in detail and well balanced composition. A standard look that will stand the test of time. Only critique; the top left corner. Perhaps a little adjustment when looking through the viewfinder.

ffrck18gs-nk25-2. If only they only they all could be as good! A spectacular close up of a rose makes a perfect CHOICE for the FLEUR category. The colours almost look like waves on the ocean as the sunsets. What does your imagination find? A shot that fills many of the ROCKLEY criteria with a tight framing.

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.
