KWC  CATCH THE  CATWALK CAPERS FOR KIDz FASHION WEEK.

On a night of hype and excitement when a new crop of potential young models strutted the catwalk, two aspiring young photographers worked hard as they did their thing behind the cameras capturing the nights events, new faces and the latest looks for Summer.

The two young KWC Misha and Victoria dubbed by the event organizer Helen “her budding young photographers” cuddle up with her at the media launch of Kidz Fashion Week. She, like all the FOCUS FORCE FANS is anxiously awaiting the “magazine preview” on Wednesday Sept.28.

JOP’S WILL SHOW US THEIR BEST FROM THIS YEARS ROYAL MELBOURNE SHOW.

  ff-rms16-vbpr1Victoria B was the first of the KWC to don her JUNIOR OFFICIAL BADGE to gain her access to some wonderful foto ops at this years show. Here she is in the media room having the thrill of seeing Channel nines newsreader Peter Hitchener through her viewfinder. She spent the day at the show, finally leaving the busy grounds after experiencing the brilliance of the fireworks as the show came to a close, and her day. More potential SUPER SHOTS on the way.  Next week, more KWC will take on the challenge at the event and submissions what FOCUS FORCES looks forward to as a grand parade of foto images by the KWC.

NEXT WEEK FOCUS FORCE WILL ANNOUNCE A CAMERA CHALLENGE FOR OCTOBER THAT WILL BE A CARD HOLDER.

FOCUS FORCE has joined ranks with BOUNTY BOXES for a special project that will see all the KWC be part of an awesome task that will see their work on display in a very special way, and a first for FF. This will have you clicking madly.

STOP PRESS. RED ALERT/ BREAKING NEWS/

FOCUS FORCE KWC COORDINATOR WHISKED AWAY FOR DISPARAGING WORDS ABOUT DARWIN’S CHINATOWN.

In a shock response to suggesting that Darwin was responsible for making false reports about the city’s heritage Phillip JW was taken on a journey where he was subjected to counseling by a visit to the Darwin Museum. After being dropped at the establishments doors the police van left alerting the public to his arrival sounding the siren. Having done his time inside, he was then sent to the beach to collect rocks. Then a two hour walk in 30 degree heat including doing more time at the Botanic Gardens, the cards were turned and he captured many free flowers with his camera. Footnote; those of you who have been to Darwin will most likely realize there is no Chinatown there. The museum is well worth the visit and inspiring. The gardens are extensive and provide a massive collection of tropical foliage and flowers. The walk is a long way, and better to take the bus. The wonderful generosity of the police officer incited me to something that I would most likely have not got around to. And on the walk back, I thought how lucky it was not both ways.

A KIDS WITH CAMERA GETS SOME IMPROMPTU HINTS IN OZ’S TOP END.

     dscn17111 While travelling with a group of tourists on a WAYOUTBACK TOUR to Leitchfield Park in the Northern territory, FOCUS FORCE’S coordinator couldn’t help himself when he saw this young guy working on a massive rock outcrop. Showing him some ideas that brought a smile to his face, we hope the “Canberra-ite” might like to share them here on focusfor.wordpress.com sometime soon. It is an always a temptation to give Kids With Cameras some clues on how to improve their shots.

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.
