Wildlife photographer Dick Wilberforce has taken snaps of all kinds of animals across the world, that even includes somewhat elusive lesser prairie chicken bird which’s habitat regions include Northwest Oklahoma. A sample of Dick’s prolific and varied photography is now on display at Pioneers Museum and Plains Indians.
Around half of the snaps featured in this exhibit are the snaps of prairie chickens. Along with that, there are also snaps of other animals including a fox, a bobcat, turkeys, cattle, quail and cardinals. Robert Roberson, the director of the museum, told that he had learned about Dick’s photography through the annual photography contest of the museum that takes place in each fall.
Robert told that when he first entered the photography contest, he was just struck by the beauty of his photographs. Previous year when he entered his snap of the dog and chicken, it just blew him away. The snap, that was named as Chicken Whisperer, shows a dog up on his hind legs with the front paws in air as he is chased by a rooster. That snap got the theme award at the photography show of the museum last year.
Dick Wilberforce has traveled across the world to places such as Africa as well as many other nations just to take pictures of wildlife. The exhibit will be held in the art gallery till 16th May. And an artist’s reception will take place on Saturday from 2 pm to 4 pm at the museum. The visitors will also get a scope to meet with Dick Wilberforce and know more regarding his wildlife pictures.
Mobile photography is creating huge waves in the world of travel, as jet setters and backpackers alike leave their big rigs at home and start their journey with their cameras on their phones. And as we know, were there are pictures, there would be some awards as well. Now we have the Mobile Photo Awards that aims to showcase the best of the genre from shutterbugs around the world.
Award founder Daniel Berman told that he sees first hand how the best artists working in the medium have advanced and evolved over the years. People have past the point of saying – wow, these were taken on a smartphone and well into the next phase of determining who the leading artists are who happen to work in the genre.
Mobile photography has become a global phenomenon these days. This year awards received photographs from almost one thousand photographers from more than forty countries.
Some of the winning pictures are on showcase through28th February at New York City’s SOHO Gallery for Digital Art. The showcase will go to the ArtHaus in San Francisco from 5th April to 29th June and then to Holcim Gallery in Milton, Ontario from 24th June to 15th July.
The work itself appears to back up the saying that photographers no longer hindered by capturing pictures with a phone, with captivating portraits and landscapes that provide a distinct sense of place, whether the picture is taken in Venice, Arizona or India.
When most of us are thinking about how we can go to work in the midst of snow or whether the home is warm enough. On the other hand wild species are going through a difficult daily confrontation with the elements to survive in this weather. Jonathan Lewis, a photographer from Norwich, has captured the life of wild animals in winter in his locality.
Getting food over the cold months might be a huge problem for many animals; if you are a barn owl, voles are not detectable easily as they tend to sleep under the snow and if you are a kingfisher, it would be quite impossible to catch fish through a frozen lake and if you are a fox most of the food sources will be unavailable.
Different animals deal with this problem in winter and they lack of food in many ways. Some, like bats or badgers, sleep out in the months, cut down their activities and they do not get the amount of food they requires. The small birds that you see in your gardens are a good example of that. These birds can lose around ten pc of their body weight in a single during cold spells. This is reason why you would see a hustle of feeding activity in the morning if you offer them food in your garden.
