1st Day of School

Well my 2 boys are off to school again! (1st grade & 3rd grade). It’s always fun taking the kids to their first day of school. I couldn’t get these guys to stay still for a picture together though! They were too excited to get to their friends. Next year I’ll plan that part a little better haha. Anyhow, it’s exciting times at Stanly Jones Elementary and a good day to reflect on another summers past. 🙂

That Sunset

Canon FD 50mm 1.2 shot @f/16

I shot this photo on Saturday night. The sunset was amazing, but there was a lot of parking lot in the middle of the picture that I didn’t like. I thought I’d hop in there and maybe make the picture a little more interesting. Not to mention giving me a change to show off my cool new Cultural Blends hoodie.😜

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 :).

Big City Sky

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-70-200mm-f2-8-isIf your a photographer in Calgary and you didn’t make it out to shoot last night, you missed out! The sky was amazing at dusk and my good friend Nathan Somes and I were out there taking it all in. The idea to shoot was a bit of a last minute thing and we were racing out the door to make it before the sky went black on us. Clearly we made it, and just in the nick of time!

After we shot this location we went to shoot a couple more and we saw these people shooting off some little fireworks. I just happen to have my 2X extender on at the time and was able to grab a quick shot of that too! It was a good night to be out shooting photos. 🙂

Uncommon Calgary

This is an uncommon view of Calgary from the south side. I personally like the view from the north better, but every now and then I’ll head over here just to remind myself there is a whole other part of the city I rarely hang out at (and I should). This picture is definitely better when viewed at a larger size, so be sure and click on the one bellow.

Fireworks Over Calgary

exif data rob moses canon 6d 70-200mm f4 ISHere is a little Calgary Stampede fireworks action from Sunday night. Fireworks are always a struggle to shoot. You need get a good one in the first few moments or the smoke takes over the scene and it usually doesn’t look as good. Thankfully I got this shot off before the smoke got to crazy.

So Cold in Calgary

exif data rob moses canon 6d 50mm 1.4I took this picture just over a week ago. It was a pretty cold night and rather late when I decided to head out. Even though I wore the appropriate layers, an extremely warm winter jacket, winter hat and 2 pairs of gloves, it was still freezing! I believe the temperature was around 0 degrees! (-18C). It does get even colder than that from time to time here in Calgary, but there was very cool wind that night too, so I didn’t last very long out there. I shot this photo and about 4 other frames and then packed it in haha. I didn’t even think I got anything decent and didn’t end up looking at the pictures until this weekend when I downloaded some other photos I shot. This one seemed alright and I put it on my Facebook page, so I thought I’d put it here too :).

Frosty Climb City

exif data Canon 5D mark iii 70-200mm Rob MosesI had to climb a pretty big fence for this shot. I had driven by this location a long time ago and thought I might be able to get a good shot if I was to climb up the fence. I just happen to be driving near that location again today and I thought with all the frost on the trees and the clear sky, it might be worth trying out. I’m glad I made the stop, because I love a picture with buildings mountains together :).

If you check out this link by around 11:30am on Sunday you can watch the Periscope video of me climbing haha. Climbing Periscope Video

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 :).

Cold View

I went out to shoot a few photos last night here in Calgary and I had to bust out the ol winter jacket! It was crazy windy and pretty cold. As if the cold night wasn’t enough, I woke up to snow on my car and lawn haha. Thankfully it’s all melted now and the forecast is calling for warmer weather after today!

Bright Lights

Canon 1D mark iii 70-200mm f2.8 IS exif data Rob Moses Photography

Even though I shot this photo at about 11:30pm the city is bright. I love the bright lights of a city at night and no other place makes me as happy or comfortable. I’m a city guy and love every bit of it :).

Question: Not sure if any of you noticed or not, but I started using this little graffic rather than typing out my exif data. What are your thoughts on that? Do you like this or the old way better? Or does it even matter to anyone? haha. Because it would be a lot easier to just not do either one.

Water Like Ice

Canon 6D & 70-200mm f4 IS @ 138mm ~ Settings: f/25 – 25 seconds – ISO 320

The river water in this picture kind of looks like ice. Well not real ice I guess, because when the river is frozen over it doesn’t look anything like this. Maybe I should get a picture of that and show you guys how depressing that scene is haha. Anyhow, these pictures can be fun, try it some time if you already haven’t.

Please Forgive My Photo & Me

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 70-300mm IS DO @ 70mm ~ Settings: f/8 – 1/125th – ISO 1250

If this photo had a nice clear sky behind it, it would be 10 times better. Normally I would just scrap the photo and go back another day when it was nicer out. However! Getting this particular angle of the city was not easy and to be honest a little sketchy haha. I was driving by the river bellow and noticed some townhouses through the trees, so I went looking for them. When I got out of my car and started walking around I figured out that the “townhouses” I saw was actually some kind of nunnery. I walked up the driveway and stood there to see if I could get a shot from there, but there was no way. I walked further in and saw a gate that led to some grass and fence over looking a cliff. Since no one seemed to mind me standing around the parking lot I figured they wouldn’t mind if I walked on the lawn and grabbed a few quick shots haha. So in true trespasser (not something I ever do) fashion I walked on the law, lifted my camera over the fence and branches and shot this photo. In hindsight I wish I would have just knocked on the door and asked if it was ok, because that would have been the right thing to do. In fact, I think I will go back on a nice day and do just that. I think I’ll ask for forgiveness while I’m at it ;).
