A Downtown View

I shot this one from Tom Campbell Park by my house in Calgary. I don’t live to far from this place and on my way home one night last summer I decided to stop by and shoot a photo with my 300mm. Earlier in the night I was out with a friend of mine shooting some photos a lot farther away from the city, I thought I might stop off here and see what kind of results I got a little closer in. Not a bad shot, but then again it’s pretty easy to get a decent shot from Tom Campell Park.

No Option to Zoom

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-300mm-f2-8I love taking pictures of the city at night. When I went to shoot photos on this night I took only one lens, my Canon 300mm f/2.8. Sometimes I’ll leave the house with only one lens, because I find it forces me into photos I might not otherwise shoot. This shot is pretty tight in and I probably would have zoomed out a bit if I had the option. After looking at the pictures on my computer, I am glad the option to zoom out was unavailable, because I like the picture as it is.

Secluded Peace

exif-data-rob-moses-photography-canon-5d-mark-iii-300mm-f2-8-lTaking pictures of a city a night has a special kind of magic to it. I find this especially true when you are in a dark and secluded place like I was for this shot. My location was completely quiet and I was very much alone. Peaceful, relaxing and exciting all at the same time. I love it. 🙂

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!

Lighting

exif data rob moses canon 6d 300mm f:2.8Nature is awesome! Right before I took this picture I actually had my camera pointed in the opposite direction. I was shooting some photos of the Calgary skyline when I noticed some flashing going on behind me. Excited at the prospect of getting a lighting bolt picture I spun my camera around and started snapping. I love how the lighting was lighting up the clouds and sky around the immediate area. Nature can put on quite the show if you find yourself in the right place at the right time. 🙂

Pieces to the Puzzle

This picture is kind of cool because of all the action going on. At first glance you might not even notice, but there really is a lot happening. First off and most importantly, the couple walking across the bridge. Then of course the people on the boat and the other people about to launch their boat. Another important piece to this photo is the train going by in the background. I waited quite a while to get that train going by and to have a good shot of some people on the bridge before shooting the photo. All these little things might not be much interest to most people, but to me they all come together to make this picture something I can appreciate.

Camera: Canon 6D & 300mm f/2.8

Apartment with a View

exif data canon t3i 300mm f:2.8 2X rob mosesI shot this photo on Saturday night. At first I thought I was going to shoot at a locationmuch farther from the city, but by the time my friend who was going me showed up at my house we didn’t have enough time to get any farther out of the town. Since I only brought this one set up with me, I was forced to shoot a lot tighter than I was expecting. Situations like this are sometimes a downer, but being forced to shoot something you might otherwise not shoot is always a good thing to me.

Rocky City Sunset

Rob Moses Exif data 6d 300mm 2.8

Yesterday evening, straight after dinner I raced out of my house to a predetermined location. When I got in my car the sun was starting to set and I worried I had waited to long to leave. By the time I got to the location the sky had not yet turned colourful. This was good, because it gave me a little time to set up and try a few different spots to get my angle just right. As soon as that sky started changing colour I started snapping! It was beautiful night to shoot the skyline and the mountains in behind the city really make the photo something special. Pictures like this kinda make me love this place :).

Run Over The Skipping Stone

Canon 6D 300mm 2.8 exif data rob moses

I went out and shot some photos last night with a friend of mine (guy ruining my picture at the bottom of the frame haha). We walked around St. Patrick’s Island here in Calgary looking for some good shots with the city in the background. I took only two lenses with me, my 300mm 2.8 & 50mm 1.8 mark 1. After a few failed spots I landed on this one, The Skipping Stone Bridge and a few others behind it. When set up, I waited for the right runner or biker to come by. The runner came first and that was good enough for me :).

Flying Under Moonlight

Yesterday evening I caught this WestJet flight flying under the moonlight. I waited around trying to get another shot of a jet flying right in front of the moon. I came close as you can see in the 2nd picture, however the shot was not meant to be at that moment. Next time! ;).

Both photos have been cropped in big time!
