Moments and Souls Outtake #1

Along with Dale Schmitt of Pittsburgh, I am pleased to announce our photo exposition at The Percolate Art Space in Pittsburgh. The exhibition runs from November 11,2017 until December 2,2017.

In order to whet your appetite we will be posting some outtakes. These are images that did not make the final cut for the exhibition but may be part of a book based on the show concept.

Richard Burke and Dale Schmitt have over 80 years of combined photographic experience. They are both eclectic photographers with broad portfolios of commercial and artistic work. They photograph people but approach that part of their portfolio in completely different ways. Richard is all about capturing the decisive moment and Dale is a creator of portraits that capture the souls of his subjects.

Join us at the gallery to celebrate the human experience!

Study in Glass Brick–Test Shots

We have different types of glass brick windows in our new house. The light coming through the windows is amazing so yesterday I did a couple of quick test shots. The test shots proved the concept and although I don’t really like this image, I am excited to see what I can do with a tripod and additional lighting.

Candidate #12—Flight

I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print for a gallery show of Photojournalism. This was taken at the Piazza del Duomo, Milano, Italy. I love the different ways each member of the family reacts to the bird. You can read, fear,exhilaration, pleasure and boredom on the different faces. Please feel free to leave comments if you agree or disagree about including them in a “best of” list.

Miss Lily’s Close Up

Flowers are great from a distance but to really see them sometimes a close up view is the best thing. This was shot on a Nikon D5200 with a Nikon 300mm Lens at ISO 3200. The shutter speed was 150 and aperture was f22. The lighting was indirect and the result is you can really appreciate the texture of the bloom.

Flutterbye

Yesterday I published Pirate Butterfly. Anytime I photography animals or sports I try to take some shots with slow shutter speeds to capture the movement of the scene. In the image “the High Heat” I try to capture the movement of the Pitcher as an example. Yesterday I published “Pirate Butterfly” speaking of baseball but was also intrigued by the movement of the wings and the stillness of the antennae.

Leaves on Black Water

The waters at Lettuce Lake Park in Tampa Florida are dark and foreboding but very clear. The dark waters make this scene a little ominous. Is an alligator lurking below or some terror from a Stephen King Book? Sometimes my imagination gets the best of me.

Two Year Blog Anniversary

WordPress sent me a message saying that today was my four year Anniversary. Technically this is correct. When I first started blogging I signed up for WordPress and Blogger. After a year and a half of sporadic blogging on Blogger I had seven followers. I realized, it just wasn’t working or worth it. After a couple of months on hiatus I decided to give WordPress another try. This was my second post in February 2012. Since then I have close to 1000 followers and average 1000 views a month. I try to post every day. Thanks to all who visit here and especially those who comment and like the posts. It is a method I use to drive attention to my commercial site but also a way to share my photography and my view of the world.

Tampa Riverwalk Patterns

Last week we went to see Itzhak Perlman at the Straz Center in Tampa Florida. It was wonderful to see a true master that is so accessible and funny. Before the show we walked along the Tampa Riverwalk and plan to return to visit the Museums. Nice job Tampa!
