On October 4th, we celebrated  WORLD ANIMAL DAY and Madeleine got off to an early start to capture her images. So early in fact, she caught this koala napping in the treetops, making it an easy subject to shoot.

These images show the dark side, with the other a lighter look at the subject. The close up does just that and brings the detail to the fore, particularly evident in the fur and even the branch bringing out the wood veins and texture.

ffwad15-mp2.An ACE SHOT in comparison to the first, getting closer to the subject and using light to the maximum to highlight the subject. Also a slight movement in position by the photographer  and positioning of the camera shows more of the koalas face. Good detail captured.

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.

  2. I cannot decide which pic I like more Madeleine. I think it is mp2 for me because of the light and detail. A beautiful and serene picture and lovely composition. Great to see you behind the camera again. Love Mum.

  3. Hi Madeleine I love the sharpness of the tree, and the close up of the koala grey colour. I felt like I need to touch his fur. Very peaceful looking koala. Well done Madeleine. Love Nan.
