An Old Sunset

This picture was just sitting on my computer for the past few years. I was never planning on doing anything with it, but I needed something for my Instagram account yesterday and I just decided to post this one. It’s not a bad picture, but I just didn’t excite me. However, there is a peaceful feel to the photo that does have it’s own quality. Figured I might as well just toss it up here too :).

Cold Kal Lake

exif-data-rob-moses-sony-a7ii-55mm-1-8-zeissKal Lake in Vernon, BC is awesome! I spend more time there in the summer than the winter and when I am there in the winter I don’t usually get out for too many photos. Thing is, I’m not all that into winter, so getting out that door with my camera is a bit of a struggle. Thankfully my kids pretty much dragged me out the door on this day and I figured I’d be crazy if I didn’t bring my camera along. The weather wasn’t exactly at it’s best, but it had a calm to it that I think I captured in the photo. Right after this shot that calm ended pretty quick when my kids started tossing the biggest rocks they could find into the lake ;).

Starry Aurora Borealis

rob-moses-exif-data-canon-5d-mark-iii-16-35mm-f2-8-iiI shot this one a little while back and never did anything with the picture. I was looking for something to post on Instagram and thought this shot wasn’t have half bad. The colorful sky always makes for an interesting look.

Surprise Fireworks

exif data rob moses sony a7ii 70-200mm OSS f4 GI was out shooting the Calgary skyline last night when all of a sudden I noticed some fireworks popping off in the distance! Unfortunately the longest lens I had with me (and only lens) was my 70-200mm. With some extreme cropping, all turned out just fine haha.

Neon

rob moses exif data canon 6d 28mm 1.8I love old neon signs on buildings. This particular one is quite wonderful. I love how this sign lights up the whole corner of the street. I shot this in Great Falls, Montana. The rest of the street was pretty dark and this little gem was a breath of fresh air in the dark night. 🙂

Montana Sunset

rob moses exif data canon 6d 50mm 1.8I was down in Great Falls, Montana over the last weekend. I drove by this massive flag while I was there and knew I had to get a sunset shot with that flag. I would have liked to have also had the town in the picture, but I still like how this one looks.

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.

I don’t have any idea what’s up with this bull statue, but I think it looks pretty cool in this setting. Another handheld shot with the Sony a7ii. For the lens, I was using the Sony fisheye converter on the 16mm f/2.8.

Blue & Red

Sony a7ii & Canon FD 50mm 1.2

Everyone seems to shoot photos at this bridge in Calgary, and why not its beautiful! I have been here a bunch of times, but on this occasion I decided to stand balancing on the back part of one of the benches there to get a little extra hight. I shot this one handheld with my Sony a7ii & Canon FD 50mm f/1.2. I can’t remember my exact settings, I think I was shooting around f/5.6 or so. I have said this before, but the image stabilization on the a7ii is just wonderful.

Oh and that title! Well you know, blue night and a red bridge. 😉

Little Lake, Big Mountains

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 ;).

Sony a7ii & Canon 50mm 1.2

I recently got a grip for my Sony a7ii. The grip is an aftermarket brand called Vello. The grip makes holding onto this camera feel way better and I am sure because of it I will reach for this camera more often than I do. The lens I have on the camera is a Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 manual focus lens from the 1970’s. Not only does this combination look awesome, it’s  produces awesome results! I added a photo I shot bellow that I took with this set up right after I took a picture of the camera. Oh and FYI, I shot the photo bellow handheld in the dead of night around 11:30pm!
