Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L at 22mm ~ Settings: f/4 – 0.5 seconds – ISO 4000
Last night I went out to shoot some photos downtown. After about 4 different locations I ended up here. At first I was just getting some skyline shots with the fence in the foreground, and then the idea to hop on the fence struck me. I hopped up on the fence triggering my camera with my trusty Canon RC-1 remote. Inspiration struck again with this idea. I shot this photo about 16 different times with a variation of different settings. I had to make sure the shutter didn’t stay open to long, because keeping that arm still enough to keep the phone sharp was quite a challenge. In the end a relatively quick aperture setting and a high ISO did the trick.
Oh and by the way, I didn’t actually take that picture with my phone haha. Getting a half decent shot of the skyline at night handheld with and iPhone 4s is near impossible. And yes I know, I need to update my iPhone ;).
Thanks for stopping by, Rob
Here’s Rob taking another great picture with his phone–amazing photo!! 😀
Haha thank you 🙂
Great photo Rob! Where are you in that shot? Where is that fence?
Thank you Diana. This is at on the Westside of McHugh Bluff Park at the end of 7A Street.
Before I read the post I looked at the picture and through you were on an upper deck/balcony and almost had heart failure at the risk of sitting there.
LOL, I don’t think I was even running the risk of hurting my toe if I fell off that fence haha. You are very sweet Grace. Thank you for your concern :).
Great shot and I didn’t think the phone was shopped until i read the post! Also, I’m still rocking the 4s too – it’s lasted longer than any phone I’ve ever had 🙂
Haha nice! Ya it’s the longest phone I’ve ever had too 😀.
Oh and thanks about the picture :).
How do we know you were (fake) shooting the view with that phone and not yourself? Now that would be a selfie of a selfie. Nice shot, btw.
Haha well, first of all if I was gonna take a selfie with my phone there, I’d be sitting the other way on that fence ;). Thanks!
Yes, I realize that selfies usually involve the best scenery as a backdrop, but the screen on your phone in your selfie above doesn’t show the view it shows your apps! Nice to see spring has arrived in Calgary.
Haha actually it doesn’t. I had the camera on and pointed to the city. I wouldn’t over look such a minor detail :).
Beautiful image Rob and that’s a smart project 🙂
Thank you 😃.
