FOCUS FORCE IN QUEENSLAND – CAIRNS CATCHUP!

Standard

rockley-garden-circa 1962 With only just over 12 hours in Queensland, FF is here to spread the word to Kids With Cameras. Having just arrived just on dusk, there wasn’t much to see in the daylight. But, with the dawning of the new day the eyes were opened to the beautiful blooms of the tropics. Even in the dim light of the night before, the lushness of the environment made for a relaxed feeling. Hopefully Phillip, the  project coordinator will be able to find some young shutterbugs to inspire to  capture the magnificent colours and floral fantasies to add to the SUPER SHOT collections for the ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION at 2014’s MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FLOWER & GARDEN SHOW. Come on Queenslanders show us what you are made of, I know the viewers will be impressed.

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.
