Straight Out of Camera Strangers

I am the proud new owner of the Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 lens! I just got it yesterday and I had to go test it out, but I needed some people to take pictures of. I zipped over to Crescent Road in Calgary and met some strangers who didn’t mind having their picture taken. The featured picture is of Jesis, he was shooting a time lapse so I went over and started talking to him and after some Instagraming I got a picture of him. I also met this really friendly girl who was taking pictures of the skyline with her phone. We go to talking and we made a deal that I’d take some pictures of her with her phone and then I’d take some with my camera haha. Then the black and white picture, well these guys just came up to me lol. These guys were also out taking pictures and just came over to see what kind of pictures I was getting. Of course, I had to get a shot these kindred spirits. The night was fun and I got to meet some really cool people, always bonus!

All the pictures are straight out of the camera with no edits. Except for the B&W and the city shot. I just wanted to see how the color Fuji files would turn out in a black and white conversation. And the city shot just needed a touch of contrast a tiny pull back on the highlights. 

The sun was in full sunset mode casting a very warm/pinkish light here↖︎.

Just Weeks before with Amy & Dwight

I went kicking around Princes Island Park with Amy & Dwight the other day to shoot some engagement photos. Funny thing about this photo session is it was only a few weeks away from the actual wedding! Not exactly typical, but who cares ;). We really lucked out with the weather because the days leading up to the shoot were really ugly out and then on the day the sun was shinning and it was sweater weather. Good weather, good people and a good location is a recipe for fun and that’s what happened.

I also shot a bit of video along the way too and have added it here if your into that sort of thing.

Little Skateboarder – Stills & Video

On Saturday afternoon my 6 year old son Cameron and I went for a little skate downtown. We were heading to the very popular Peace Bridge to get a shot of Cameron on his skateboard in the middle of the bridge. However, when we got there the wind was blowing like crazy and it was kind of a bad scene. We decided to hit the streets in search of a new spot to shoot a photo. We found a spot with smooth cement, places to leave our gear and set up our cameras with very little interruption from passerbyers.

Not only did we shoot photos, but we were also rolling video on the whole thing for my vlog. I didn’t realize how many times I had Cam push off on his skateboard for the photo until I was going over the video footage at home. I didn’t count how many times he did it, but it was a at least 30 times! For a 6 year old to have that kind of patience on a photo shoot is amazing. I also noticed he took direction very well. I was super impressed by all of this at the time, but even more so after the fact. I think he’d make a good little actor or model if he wanted to go down that road. For now I think we’ll just stick to the skateboarding though ;).

Lake House Wedding: Sunyoung & Santi

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-24-70mm-f2-8-l-5d-mark-iiiAnytime I book a wedding in late October or early November in Calgary I worry about how the weather will be. Usually this time of year we are walking around in snow! Sunyoung and Santi’s November wedding definitely had me concerned about what kind of weather we were going to be dealing with. Lucky for us, the weather was great! Well, at first it was decent, as in not snowing or cold. Since the ceremony was indoors the overcast sky didn’t really bother me.

Of course the ceremony went wonderful and since this was a day wedding we had an amazing lunch at the Lake House at Lake Bonavista. As usual I was moving around the venue shooting my photos, all while keeping my eye on the windows to see how the skies were looking. Once it was time for us to leave the venue to our photo shoot the skies had yet to clear up. Overcast can be a wonderful friend while shooting wedding photos, but some blue sky and sun is always nice too. Either way I’ll make it work, but then I saw a few breaks in the sky and had my fingers crossed for a bit of sun.

As luck would have it, about 20 minutes into our photo shoot the sun decided to make an appearance and it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time! We had just finished setting up by the river and wa-la, the sun! I couldn’t have been happier and I am sure Sunyoung & Santi feel the same way.

All photos shot with a Canon 5D mark iii, 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8 & 1 580EXii Speedlite

A Shot with Joshua

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-eos-6d-70-200mm-f4-isIt’s not often I get to have a picture with my son Joshua. You would think I have tons, but unfortunately I don’t! I have decided that is all going to change and I am going to make more of an effort to get in pictures with my children. They grow so fast and it seems like I barely have any pictures of me with them. Here’s to a good start. 🙂

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-70-300mm-doI rarely post head shots here, but I really like how the lighting turned out on this one. Shadows can be your best friend when shooting portraits and I’d say that is the case for this photo. For this shot I had one Canon 580EX ii to camera left shot through a white umbrella.

Summer Night Selfie

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-ef-300mm-f2-8Not a proper selfie, but I did take this picture of myself :). I had been out shooting all night and thought before I packed it in I would jump in on a shot. To get the focus right, I propped my iPhone up on the 2X Extender I had with me with the “notes” app open for the white screen (as seen in the picture bellow). Once the phone was set, I ran back to my camera and auto focused on the phone and then set the lens to manual focus. I did a couple small adjustments, set the 10 second timer and ran back to my pre determined spot which was marked by my keys. I shot this photo about 4 or 5 times and it was easily the most fun I had all night!

5 Year Old Violet

Time flies when you’re having fun. I took pictures of Violet for her 2nd, 3rd, 4th and now 5th birthday! When her mom Amanda texted me about doing the photos I could hardly believe it had already been another year! I still can’t believe it. Anyhow, Violet was a super fun as she always is and was more chatty and funny than last year. Seeing how Violet has changed over the years has been amazing and having the pleasure to take her picture each time has been an honour. Thanks for hanging with me you two! 😉

All photos shot with a Canon 5D Mark iii with a 50mm 1.4 & 135L

Some photos shot with a 580EX ii Speedlite shot into a white shoot through umbrella.

Melissa + 4

I had the pleasure of shooting some photos with Melissa and her wonderful children last weekend. We shot these photos along a walking path in a not so busy part of a massive park in the south west of the city. I thought shooting photos with 4 children and one parent would be a little more difficult, but everyone was super easy going and it made for a nice little shoot. 🙂

Marie in the Rain

I took a trip out to Vernon BC this weekend because my sister in-law Marie was graduating high school. All of the grads go this park in the town to take pictures, so I met up with Marie there. Of course, I by the time we found each other, I was able to shoot ONE photo before it started raining cats and dogs! Like you might as well be standing in the shower rain, it was ridiculous! I had Marie use an umbrella and we also shot some other ones of family under a tree. The rain was a major pain, but it did make it kind of fun :).

Tamilla Working

exif data rob moses canon 6d 50mm 1.4I did a photo shoot with this lovely young woman over the weekend. If you’re a regular to this blog then you might recognize Tamilla from a recent wedding I shot. And also her engagement photos before that. Anyhow, Tamilla needed some photos for her website, so we made our way around some indoor locations (because it’s freezing in Calgary right now) and shot some photos.

You can see Tamilla’s wedding photos HERE and her engagement photos HERE.

I also put together a little 15 second video clip for Instagram from the photo shoot. It’s here if you want to check that out too. 🙂

Melissa for Coffee

Lens: Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 @ 1.2

This is Melissa, she is one of the realtors I work with. Yesterday I heard her say she was heading to a coffee shop by our office, so I cased her down so I could get a picture of her. She didn’t want to have her picture taken since I didn’t give her any warning, but I insisted :). I took this right in front of the coffee shop and I shot a few frames. Melissa actually preferred another shot I took of her where she wasn’t smiling so much. I thought she looked so happy in this picture, so I decided to use this one anyhow haha.

4 Year Old Violet

Canon 6D 50mm 1.4 exif data rob moses

This is the 3rd photo shoot I have done with Violet and her mom. Violet is about to turn 4 years old and for the past couple of birthdays we have done a photo shoot. It’s so fun to see her over the years and watch how she has changed. This year Violet was easier than ever to work with and seemed to be pretty easy going about taking pictures for a 4 year old. Every year I shoot photos with these fun girls it is a good time and this year was no different in that regard. 🙂

I shot all these photos with a Canon 6D, 28mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4 & 135mm f2.
