The curtain comes down on the KIDz Fashion festival with this final collection of images. Our two FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras went to extreme effort to cover the event. They attended two events including the media launch, and then the festival night itself. On that occasion, they worked under the direction of the project coordinator, and were given different tasks. Here are the results of that and many of them, deserve a POST Of PRAISE from you. Once again well done Victoria and Misha. We look to seeing them at work at the next festival.

It all added to the atmosphere of the night. Get into the act with a POST Of PRAISE for Misha.


ff16-kfwsp-mr54. Another smiling princess does all she can to show she’s really having a ball, as all the young models were doing. With a shot by Misha like this who could argue that the tiara was not an added compliment and make her feel the part. Pay homage to the star with a POST Of PRAISE


ff16-kfwsp-mr51. This little embroidered top is ultra smart and will draw a lot of oohs as it is paraded by the summertime girls. Misha caught the look totally in a carefree image that will gain her a few POST Of PRAISE.

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.
