(1.) FOCUS ON FACES. Lots of effort go into the preparation of appearance for the night, and this is a subject of interest to aim your camera for. Here, is a great foto op to use the light (or created light) to add scary images to your list. REMEMBER THE CLOSER YOU ARE TO YOUR SUBJECT; THE BIGGER IT WILL BE. (2.) POSED POINT. Using the full frame of the camera, but getting close and “tight” to your subject; highlight the uniqueness of what you are photographing. Look at aspects of the garment and highlight interesting aspects of it. (3.) PROP UP A GOOD SUBJECT. There are many items associated with Halloween, not to mention the pumpkin as just one.

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.
