TALKING WITH KIDS WITH CAMERAS. In the past week I have had the pleausre of having a brief chat with most of the FOCUS FORCE that have entries in the ROCKLEY FLOWER FOTO EXHIBITION in preparation for a number of media releases telling of their anticipated success. The one that came across with all of them was the maturity for their young years, and the excitement building for them with the upcoming award ceremeony.

THE GOOD THING ABOUT USING YOUR CAMERA.

No matter what you do in life, your camera can be your constant companion, and your best friend. Wherever you go , whatever you do, your camera should be the closest thing to you so that memories and photo ops are never missed. Today with the Iphone in your pocket or handbag, there is never an excuse to miss the opportunity that sometimes may happen once in a lifetime!

THIS WEEKEND – LOOK TO THE SKIES  & WHATS FLYING OVER THE TOP.. THE AIR SHOW.

Screaming jets will soar overhead, and fantastic acrobatic displays in the air will take the breath away of those on the ground. Once every four years this extraganza of the air takes place in the skies above Avalon and Melbourne. All the newest in aeronautics land on the ground and go through their paces showing off to the admiring crowds. From the latest in defence planes to the largest of cargo planes they all assemble here for the world top see. Lots of foto ops for FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras and others ready to aim and shoot!

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.
