Best Photographer Finalist

So last month I got an email that said (among other things) “You were recommended for the Calgary Event Awards as an amazing event photographer”, I’ll leave out all the other boring stuff, but that line pretty much says it all. Anything like that is always nice to hear, so with that email I tossed my hat in the ring. Then a week or so later I got another email that read “Calgary Event Awards 2017 – Finalists” and then “Congratulations!” blah, blah, blah. Nice! I guess some other people kinda like what I do too. So as it turns out I’m up for Best Photographer and it’s between two other photographers and myself. The awards are on March 2nd, so I’ll be sure and let you guys know if I win or not. 🙂

Orange

exif-data-rob-moses-5d-mark-iii-100mmI shot this photo with the help of a friend of mine. We sliced the orange and then put it between 2 panes of glass and set it up standing. We had one Canon 580ex ii (triggered by pocket wizards) set up directly behind the orange. We then took a piece of paper with a hole cut into it. While I shot the photo my friend held the paper right behind the orange. Shooting this photo took a bit of work, but it was a lot of fun doing it!

I Instagram Lived this whole photo shoot. So if your on Instagram you should give me a follow (@RobMoses) and catch me on the next shoot live :).

Ski Village Sign

I took this picture up at the Silver Start Mountain Resort in Vernon, BC. I though the snow on the sign with the ski village background looked just perfect. I didn’t get anything at the bistro so I can’t speak to their product, but the sign is good! 😉

I was out cruising around Calgary last night taking pictures. I shot this photo in Chinatown. I love these lion statues, it seems like you can find them in just about every decent size city you go to.

Abandoned Car

Canon 6d 17-40mm exif data rob mosesI went out on a little photo adventure with a friend of mine over the weekend. My friend had scouted the location of this abandoned farm on another trip he had done in the area. After walking around the spot for 15 minutes or so, I noticed the car. I knew right away I was going to like the final product. The car is just placed in the perfect spot near the shore of the lake. Pretty crazy to think that car was once something special to someone and now it’s just sitting in the middle of nowhere slowly decaying. . . Ah well, out with the old and in the new I guess hey ;).

Swinging Around

Nice View

Joplin Bug

exif data canon 6d 17-40mm rob mosesWhat you know about cruising in a vintage convertible VW Bug! I saw this little jem while roaming the streets of Tulum, Mexico. I guess this is the Mexican version of Janis Joplin‘s car. 😅

A Friends Camera

rob moses exif data canon 6d 70-200mm f4 isI was out shooting the skyline with a friend of mine over the weekend when this idea popped into my head. At first I shot this photo at f4 and slowly made my way to f14. At f4 you couldn’t tell what was in front of the camera, but here in this shot I think it’s a little more clear :).

U.S. Mail

rob moses exif data canon 5d 24-70mm 2.8I shot this photo down on the east side of Lake Coeur d’Alene, Idaho in 2012. The photo never made it up here back then for some reason, so I thought better late than never ;). I took this picture with my trusty old original Canon 5D (on its 2nd shutter) and 24-70mm f/2.8 L. It was a wonderful set up back then and I still believe it to be a capable set up today.

Rings of Fire

canon 50d tamron 17-50mm vc rob moses exif dataLast night my friend Nathan and I took the Skipping Stone Bridge in Calgary with a chain and some steel wool. Nathan had wanted to shoot some of these type of photos for about a year and we finally decided to get out and do it. We would both set up our cameras and get our setting and composition the way we wanted, then Nathan would get in position, light the thing on fire and let er rip! On the first attempt the baking whisk that was holding the steel wool flew off the chain almost immediately and flew over the side of the bridge! haha. Luckily the whisk landed on the shore and not into the river. After a quick retrieval mission, the fun times were back on. 🙂

The Minion Tourist

rob moses exif data Canon 50D Tamron 17-50mm VCI don’t know about you, but I like these little Minions! This little toy belongs to my son and I thought it would be a fun picture to take as if the Minion was a tourist haha. The 2nd shot of him was from inside my car. The Minion was standing on the edge of the passenger side door and there is a tree with lights behind him.
