FLYING HIGH AT THE MELBOURNE SHOW.

Standard

The heading on this article says it all, and in saying that with so many to choose from FF has decided to show this selection of SUPER SHOTs over 2 days, today and the second group on Sunday. All the fun n thrills  are caught by 2 Kids With Cameras when  Neave and Matthew took up the CAMERA CHALLENGE and found an extensive collection of images that caught the show in action. For that reason FF will bring you the expanded collection. Looking at the 2 CHOICES today will have KWC eager to show us what they can do in 15. Again thanks to the ROYAL MELBOURNE SHOW for supporting the Kids With Cameras and we hope that some of these images can go on show next year. Show your appreciation with a POST Of PRAISE.

ffmelbsh14-mb18.Matthew aimed high to find this image in the sky, and you have admit that it takes the eye and imagination. A inspired image of what is considered to be a staple part of the show excitement. A pic that has all the values of a thousand words, this is high on the list for a POST Of PRAISE.

FFMELBSH14-MB8ffmelbsh14-mb8.A Dogs day is never done as this sheep herder is put through his paces mustering the flock in the city. Matthew ignored the obvious of shooting over the fence, instead using the rails to create a frame. Not showing all the sheep is an interesting gimmick giving us enough to understand what is going on. Tempting for a POST Of PRAISE

This time Neave shows us what the show is all about.  FFMELBSH14-NL12ffmelbsh14-nl12HEY LOOK at pretty me, and my friend too says the kewpie doll to Neave and her camera. Who could resist such a shot and the young KWC took several before she felt she had it right. A nice image that conjures up all sorts of ideas. C’mon guys surely I’m worth a POST Of PRAISE,

This shot by Matthew  captures the atmosphere that people enjoy, making it a joy for the viewer.

ffmelbsh14-mb11.The shows equestrian events are world renowned and this image is well designed with the seating providing an interesting backdrop. Don’t be fooled with the lack of spectators FOCUS FORCE will make up for them with viewers here. Jump in and make a POST Of PRAISE.FFMELBSH14-NL10

 ffmelbsh14-nl10.Neave asks; How’s this for a purrfect pic of a puss? A fabulous image tells us that a day at the show can be a tiring time for a cat on the town. And purrfect for a POST Of PRAISE.

FFMELBSH14-NL9 ffmelbsh14-nl14. Farming and agriculture stretches throughout history back to the stable in Jerusalem and beyond. This statue at the showgrounds stands as a monument to the backbone of the nation and the people who work daily at it. A well found find by Neave.

FFMELBSH14-MB2
ffmelbsh14-mb2. Swingin high in the sky, Matthew certainly strolled the showgrounds with his head in the clouds. And from the collection of shots it certainly paid off for him, Think its worthy of a POST Of PRAISE?

FFMELBSH14-MB17ffmelbsh14-mb17. Against a blue sky as its backdrop Matthew caught the daredevil moment above him. Shots like this are a challenge, so imagine what this young guy would have caught with an automatic with powerful lens. The first thing in finding a SUPER SHOT is to see the possibilities and then try them. It’s all worth a try!

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.
