I shot this photos the other day on my way home from work. It is a look down 1st Street SW downtown in Calgary. These types of pictures are always fun for me, because I love the city and watching people buzzing around. The picture has a nice mix of different types of architecture and a few little things here and there that hold my attention, so I enjoy looking at it. I hope you do too!

Bit Of A Challenge

Camera: Canon 6D & 70-200mm f/2.8 at 200mm ~ Settings: f/11 – 1/320th – ISO 400

So the other day fellow photographer and blogger Steve Boer (www.steveboer.com) passed on 5 day black and white photo challenge to me. The idea is to post black and white photos for 5 days straight. I love black and white, but there aint no way I’m posting 5 black and white shots back to back haha. So I told him I’d post one for one day and that’s the best could do. However, I decided to post 2 (on one day).

With all that said, onto the pictures. These two photos were clearly shot on different days. The first one was shot on a more mild day and the 2nd one a much more cold day (yesterday). You could probably guess from the snow on the ground and the guys ski goggles! lol. This is how I feel about biking, if it’s so cold you gotta strap on the ol ski goggles to take a cruise, then it’s to damn cold for biking! ;).

PS, Although these types of challenges are fun, I probably won’t make a habit of doing them when passed on to me. Just an FYI so I don’t hurt anyones feeling in the future.

When I shot this photo I had posted my self up at the turning point of this path. This way I could see who was coming up the stairs and decide if I wanted to take their picture or not. I saw thing guy walking up and waited for him to look directly at me before I took the picture. It’s fun to get the people looking right at you from time to time when shooting in the street :).

The woman in the second picture actually stopped and talked to me for a moment and I was happy to meet her and her little Westie! Those little doggies just happen to be my favourite kind.

The river water in this picture kind of looks like ice. Well not real ice I guess, because when the river is frozen over it doesn’t look anything like this. Maybe I should get a picture of that and show you guys how depressing that scene is haha. Anyhow, these pictures can be fun, try it some time if you already haven’t.

A little through back to greener times in my neighbourhood. I can’t wait for it to look like this again. I’m getting tired of washing my car every 3 days and ruining perfectly good shoes to slush and snow. Here’s to an early spring! I hope ;).

Prints

I finally decided to put together a little prints page! It’s easy and straight forward to use so if you ever feel like spending some money, head to Prints.RobMoses.com ;).

You can order prints for framing in a lustre finish semi-gloss paper with vibrant colors in the following sizes: 4×6, 5×7, 8×10, 11×14. If you want a canvas you can order beautiful Hand-Crafted premium gallery wraps made with strong 1-1/2” deep poplar frames & UV protected laminate that protects & enhances. The gallery wraps are available in: 16×24, 20×30, and 24×36.

The gallery is a little Calgary heavy at the moment, but I will be adding new photos all the time. I just gotta take a zip through my external hard drive and see what else I have on there that might interest people.

Engagement in Hazy YYC: Caroline & Danny

All Photos shot with a Canon 5D mark iii & 50mm 1.4 & 28mm 1.8 

I did an Engagement shoot on Tuesday with this fun couple, Caroline & Danny. We met at nice look out spot of the city, unfortunately it was a rather hazy day in Calgary. I wasn’t to worried about the haze thought, since the pictures are about them and not the city ;). It was also cold! We powered throughout the cold weather and walked down to the Centre Street Bridge and shot a few photos there. After the bridge we decided heading to an indoor spot might be a better idea and that is where we spent the rest of our time.

At our indoor location the lighting was just awful! 2 different harsh colours of light, one a crazy yellowy / orange and the other that kind of bluey / white colour (like hospital lighting). For the indoor shots I used one Canon 580EX ii shot into a white bounce umbrella. The flash did a pretty good job of sorting out the crazy colour cast on Caroline & Danny, however the background was still mess and I had to fiddle around with the white balance and colour corrector tools quite a bit in the post. Even though the lighting was a pain, I rather enjoyed the warmth! :).

I shot this one from the ferry while pulling into Port Townsend, Washington. I am a big fan of old buildings and houses and Port Townsend has an abundance of both. The architecture alone is enough for me to fall in love with the place, but just about everything else there did it for me too :). Visit Port Townsend!

Joshua The Hockey Player

All photos shot with a Canon 6D & Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 ~ Settings: f/2.8 in Aperture Priority & ISO 100

My 5 year old son Joshua has started playing organized hockey this year. The program he has joined is called Grassroots Hockey and it is a mellow introduction to organized hockey. The kids play outdoors and the focus seems to be more on having fun, rather than taking the game to serious. This was Joshua’s 2nd game and he got him self a nice little hat trick (3 goals) for the 2nd game in a row. They don’t have proper goalies or anything, so scoring isn’t exactly the hardest thing to do in this league haha ;). It’s really fun and super cute watching these little guys bumping around the rink.

On my way home yesterday evening I made a quick stop to shoot a few photos. This girl ran right by me on the sidewalk before she looped around in front of my lens. I noticed right away that her dog was carrying a piece of wood in his mouth haha. I guess it would be a good thing to have if the opportunity to play came up :).
