Heck of a Sunset

I was on my way home from a photo shoot last night and I could see a wicked sunset going down. It was a bit late and I wanted to get home, but I knew I would regret not stopping for one last picture. Am I ever glad I stopped, because it was one heck of sunset indeed! 🙂

DIY Deadcat Mic Windscreen

I made a DIY video on how to make a Deadcat style windscreen out of the tail of a stuffed cat (teddy bear) haha. I did a couple tests and it worked really good! If you care about your video’s audio you might like this video. 🙂

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.

My son Cameron and I took a walk to the store the other day and on our way there I shot this photo. I think next time I’ll bring a tripod and hop in the picture with him. 🙂

On The Railing

sony-a850-minolta-100mm-f2-8-macro-rob-moses-exif-dataI was out for a walk around the neighbourhood with my son Joshua yesterday evening. I wanted to shoot a photo with my Minolta 100mm lens and I figured I’d find something to shoot a long the way. When we got to the spot in the picture, my son suggested I just take a picture of him. I’m glad he made the suggestion, because I love how the photo turned out.

4 Year Old Violet

Canon 6D 50mm 1.4 exif data rob moses

This is the 3rd photo shoot I have done with Violet and her mom. Violet is about to turn 4 years old and for the past couple of birthdays we have done a photo shoot. It’s so fun to see her over the years and watch how she has changed. This year Violet was easier than ever to work with and seemed to be pretty easy going about taking pictures for a 4 year old. Every year I shoot photos with these fun girls it is a good time and this year was no different in that regard. 🙂

I shot all these photos with a Canon 6D, 28mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4 & 135mm f2.

Soccer Time!

Canon 1D mark iii exif data Rob Moses

My 6 year old son Joshua has started playing organized soccer this year and he had his 2nd game yesterday. He is playing for the Bridgeland Riverside team (Bridgeland Bears). They only got their uniforms at the last practice, so I thought it was a good time to shoot a few photos. The kids are so fun to watch at this ages because they are just out there having so much fun. It’s wonderful to watch the joy they get out of such a great game.

FYI: They won the game against the Mount Pleasant team 3-2 :).

Timeless Fun

6d exif data rob moses

I’m sure most of us have done this before as a child and some of us as adults. Not exactly sure why dragging a stick a long a fence is so fun for a child, but it definitely falls into the timeless category in my book. This picture is of my son Cameron when we were walking to the park one day. 🙂

Floating Around in the Fog

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L ii at 35mm ~ Settings: f/2.8 – 1/400th – ISO 2500

It has been rather foggy around Calgary these days. Yesterday I decided to take a picture of myself on the path in front of my house. My original idea was to shoot a photo of me just standing in the path with my camera and I did that. When reviewing the photos on the cameras LCD I thought the photo could use a little extra zip, and the idea to jump popped into my head. I think the levitating look adds a real fun element to the shot.

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L ii at 35mm ~ Settings: f/4.5 – 1/125th – ISO 2000

I used a Canon RC-1 remote on a 2 second timer to trigger my camera which was on a tripod behind me. I shot about a dozen of these, because I had to make sure I jumped right at the perfect time to be in the air when the shutter clicked. I also didn’t want my clothes to look like they were flapping around either. At first I was wearing a hoody on while doing this, but it just didn’t look right. It was only after the fact that I noticed my shirt matched my lens haha. Just good luck there.

As for the second shot, since I was clearly taking up the whole path way I had the opportunity to say hello to a few people from the neighbourhood. I snapped a quick shot of this friendly guy and his dog as they walked by. Nothing like getting in people’s way to spark up a little dialog. 😉

Side Note: If anyone is wondering, in the picture I’m holding a Canon 6D & 70-200mm f/2.8 IS in my hand.

Scattered Sky

Camera: Canon 16-35L @ 35mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1.3 seconds – ISO 800

Yesterday when I was on my way home I noticed the sky looked a little scattered. I thought it was worth stopping to grab a quick picture, so I did just that. I didn’t feel like dragging out my tripod and setting it up, because I was afraid the sun would completely go down and I’d lose all the colour in the sky while doing it. So I just place my camera on a ledge and used one of my fingers under one side to level it off and let the shutter go. Who needs Manfrotto when you got ManPhoto tripod ;).

Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Note: I don’t really recommend this technique for long exposures, if you got the time just use your tripod.

 

Joshua’s Christmas Concert

Last night my 5 year old son Joshua had his school (Stanley Jones Elementary) Christmas Concert. The lighting wasn’t exactly ideal, but the cuteness made up for it! :). Joshua is the taller boy on the right hand side with the Calgary Flames tie on.

3 Buddies in the City

Yesterday my sons and I caught the train from our neighbourhood to one of the neighbouring areas to mix up our urban routine. Naturally I had my camera with me and shot a few photos through out the afternoon. Our original idea was to check out some candy stores I knew of in the area, however they were both close. In replacement of candy we got rice crispy squares, pumpkin loaf and coffee (only I had the coffee haha). We hang out at a table on the street, enjoyed our snacks and took in the city as it should be taken, with good company and good coffee! ;).
