Autumn in Calgary

I shot this photo a few weeks ago and wasn’t going to share it because I thought it would make a better night shot. Then I figured there is no reason to not share both. I took this picture from the parking garage of a local college (SAIT). I was looking for portrait locations and while I was looking around I just snapped this photo for the heck of it. It aint bad, maybe a little heavy on the parking lot though.

Jawny

I met up with an old friend of mine last night and of course I just had to shoot a few photos of the guy. Catching up with your friends is always fun and taking pictures of people is too. Definitely fun times as always with Jawny!

His First Real Camera

I gave my 6 year old son Cameron his first real camera today. He had been asking me for one for the past 6 months and he was very clear he wanted one like mine with a proper viewfinder, so no point and shoots would do. I told him I would be keeping my eye out for a good deal on a camera for him and today was the day. Cameron is now the happy owner of a good old Canon 20D! A camera I have a lot of experience with, as I shot one for a very long time back in the 20D days. He loves the camera and I think it will suit him just fine while he dips his toes into the wonderful world of photography.

When I gave Cameron the camera he was super excited and happy! I quickly showed him the basics and he ran out the door to shoot photos. I caught up with him about 45 minutes later and he was still wondering around the block taking pictures. We passed by this tree and he ask me to hold his camera. He shot up the tree, I gave him is camera back and he started taking pictures of this dog that was sitting in the grass. I’d say he’s got the right idea about getting a unique shot. Who knows, we just might have another photographer in the family. 🙂

Enjoy The Sunset

exif-data-canon-5d-classic-ef-85mm-1-8I was out one day for a walk the park and was enjoying the sunset. I walked up on this couple who were taking it all in with a front row seat. That feather in the guys cap caught my eye and I thought putting the sun right between them would be perfect. I like how the sun looks in the picture and I love how it looked in person.

Rick with a Canon FD 85mm

Sony a7ii Canon FD 85mm 1.8 exif data rob moses

This is Rick and he is one of the Realtors I work with. Rick wanted new picture for his blog and I wanted to try shooting headshot with my 1970’s Canon 85mm f/1.8 on a Sony A7ii. Shooting such shallow depth of field with these old manual focus lenses definitely slows things down. Shooting in this fashion does make things more interesting, but attention to detail is a must. The A7ii has a cool little function when shooting manual focus. You press one button and the view finder zooms in 100% to a predetermined point, you can then get your focus right where you want it and then shoot the photo. This works well for an adult, but good luck keeping a kid still enough to take advantage of this one. If you got a bunch of old lenses kicking around, picking up one of these bodies might be good idea.

Cammy – Manual Focus

Camera: Sony A7R & Canon FD 85mm f/1.8 ~ Settings: f/1.8 – 1/1600th – ISO 100

Yesterday evening my son Cammy and I went for a little bike ride around the block and I shot this photo of him. I took the picture with a Sony A7R with a 1970’s Canon FD 85mm f/1.8 manual focus lens. I find shooting with these old lenses fun, however it can become quiet frustrating at times. I like to shoot wide open with a shallow depth of field and getting the focus right on point with a manual focus lens isn’t the easiest thing to do when your used to the joy and ease of a modern auto focus lens. When you do get that focus right, it is extra gratifying though :).

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.

Cecilia – Writing in Cosmopolitan Calgary

I haven’t posted any People of Calgary stuff here for quite a while, so here ya go ;).

The People of Calgary

I ran into Cecilia at one of my favourite photo spots in the city, Crescent Road at the top of McHugh Bluff Park. I had just arrived there and got all my stuff ready to go when I saw Cecilia walking towards me. I said to my self, “this girl looks like the prefect candidate”. I walked over to her and told her what I was up to and if she was interested in participating, clearly she was and I couldn’t have been happier. I love it when the first person I ask says yes :).

3 Year Old Violet

I did a shoot with Violet and her mom last year for her 2nd birthday and I had the pleasure of another shoot for her 3rd birthday! 🙂 The first few shots I used a reflector because the sun was blaring. The reflector really has a nice bit of light that I like a lot and I am going to try to take it out a little more often. Anyhow, here are a few of the photos from little Violet’s shoot. Happy 3rd Birthday! :D.

Seattle at Night

These are couple shots I took in Seattle that I really like. I shot them last year from Kerry Park in Queen Anne (my favourite neighbourhood). If you ever make your way to Seattle, a stop at Kerry Park is a must. You can see the whole city, ocean and mountains from there. If you have small children a trip to Kerry Park can be fun for them too, as there is a playground just down the hill from the view point.
