FOYM – SO MUCH TO THINK ABOUT!

Standard

In many ways July has been a sensational month for the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras, and in saying that it can only mean many more to come for the rest of ’16. With Spring, only just a month away, for the first time the first finalists for the ROCKLEY EXHIBITION & AWARDS will be announced in the lead up to the 2017 MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL FLOWER & GARDEN SHOW. This will comprise the works collected and submitted from this year’s show. They then can be added to with the final selections to be submitted and announced in January.

 This weeks FFF comes from Nadia K taken while on a FF FUN FOTO SHOOT in the Fitzroy Gardens recently. It’s been titled “LEMON ROSE” by FOCUS FORCE not only for it’s color, but also the wall background that looks like the textured skin of a lemon. A good choice to put up for the title. This, also has aspirations to be in the Rockley Flower Foto Exhibiton 2017.

REMEMBER 1000 REWARD POINTS ARE UP FOR GRABS FOR THE FFF FOR THE MONTH IN JULY & THE NEXT 2 MONTHS.

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.
