Brittany & Ben

I did an engagement shoot with Brittany & Ben last weekend. The weather was calling for rain and Brittany & Ben are in town from England and were leaving the next day, so rescheduling the shoot wasn’t exactly an option. Lucky for us the rain let up for pretty much the whole shoot. Thanks for that sky! I had so much fun with these two. Many laughs were had and we got some cool shots! Fingers crossed for better weather during the wedding next year, but either way I know we’ll have a good time and get some good pictures :).

Plans by Myself

Shot @ f/1.2

I shot this photo on Saturday night. I actually had plans to meet up with a friend of mine, but then at the last minute he informed me the plans were a no go. At first I thought to myself, well that sucks. Then I thought, hey no problem I’ll just make plans with myself! I grabbed my camera and headed out the door for some solo fun.

I took this picture at one of my favourite view points in the city on Crescent Road. I was shooting with my Fujifilm X-E1 and my manual focus Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 lens. I prefocused on the bench I was sitting on and hopped on the bench. It took a few tries as it always does in a situation like this, but it was good fun and I got this cool picture out of it. 🙂

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↖︎.

Fujifilm X-E1 & Canon 50mm 1.2

I picked up this Fujifilm X-E1 on consignment the other day when I was down at my local camera shop. The body was there for $250, so I thought why not. At that price you can’t really go wrong. The screen has some scratches on it, but that kind of thing doesn’t bother me. I got my vintage Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 on the camera and have been testing it out for the past week. Everyday I learn something new about the camera and I think I am close to figuring out the settings so the jpegs come out the way I like. FYI, I have been shooting raw since forever, but the Fuji JPEGs are supposed to be what’s up so I’m moseying down that road right now.

The pictures bellow (except for the camera shot) are just some random shots I took with the camera. All the photos are straight out of the camera with no edits applied to the pictures. From one picture to the next I had wished I made a little adjustment here or there, but I am getting closer to what I want as the days go on. I am sure by this time next week I’ll have that thing dialled in perfect, well perfect for me at least haha.

Coffee & A Wedding: Amy & Dwight

Amy and Dwight were so much fun! As I am sure you can tell from the pictures these two and their friends are a riot to be around and it was a pleasure for me to be able to be a part of their day. We started out at a coffee shop the girls have spent a lot of time hanging out in, and it was a wonderful idea because I absolutely love the photos we got there! Then we stopped off at this little park and shot a few more photos. The actual wedding photo shoot part of our day was by far the quickest I have ever shot. We had a whopping 15 minutes to shoot our photos! lol. As you can imagine the shoot was peddle to the metal trying to get as many pictures as we could in such a short time. To my surprise we were able to get what we needed and everyone was pretty relaxed :). Amy and Dwight seem like the type of people that no matter what the situation is, they will find a way to make it fun and that’s exactly what this wedding was.

Thanks for the fun wedding! Rob

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.

Autumn Spokane View

The last time I went to Spokane in the fall I got a pretty wicked room that had this beautiful view! The deck was actually massive and I really should have got a picture of it, but I guess I forgot haha. Anyhow, if you want a good view this hotel (The Red Lion) has a lot of good rooms with nice views.

I thought might as well add a picture of myself on the the deck too ;).

Vlog: Calgary Event Awards

If you caught my post from a couple of weeks back (here), you know I was up for Best Photographer at the Calgary Event Awards. Instead of packing a camera along for the ride as I normally would, I decided I would shoot some video for my vlog instead. Watch the video and see how it all went down. It was a fun night and I hope to be back again soon!

Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Note: If you haven’t noticed I have added a vlog page here (found on the main menu). I will add vlogs as I make them. I don’t have any set days that I will be posting them yet, but they should be once a week at the very least. If your into that sort of thing you can just subscribe to my youtube channel at YouTube.com/RobMoses.

Our Cancun Trip

rob-moses-exif-data-sony-a7ii-24-70mmSo as you may already know my family and I took a trip to Cancun Mexico recently. As you can imagine I took a lot of pictures. I will be sharing some of the Mexico pictures on here over the next little while, but I though I’d drop a bunch at once right now to give you an idea of how the trip looked. It was warm, fun and I’m looking forward to the next one!

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! 😉

Wine

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-100mm-f2-8-macro-is-usmThis was a fun picture to take. I had one large softbox set up to camera right. The background was a board with a bunch of white lights stuck to it with crinkled tinfoil stuck in between them. I shot this handheld while a friend of mine poured the wine into the glass. We made a bit of mess, but it was definitely worth the trouble.🍷😀

Mexican Stars & Streets

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-28mm-1-8I shot this one last year while I was staying at some resort between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I didn’t have a tripod with me at the time so I couldn’t get the composition exactly how I would have liked it. I just rested my camera on a ledge and shot a long exposure. Turned out ok, good enough to share anyhow ;). Oh and I just thought I’d add a few random street photography shots from one night when I was walking around Playa Del Carmen.
