Hey Guy!

Here is another Fujifilm X-T2 straight out of camera shot (no edits). This guy was parked here and taking pictures looking the other direction. I wanted to get a picture with his face in it, so I yelled “Hey Guy!” haha. Judging by the direction of his eyes he must have thought it was someone else yelling at him. 🤣

Happy Cycling

exif data rob moses canon 6d 50mmI was walking down the street when I noticed the bright red fire truck heading my way. Then the bright and happy cyclist caught my eye. Like an old west gun slinger, I whipped my camera in front of my face and snapped this photo. People like this make the world a better place and Portland is filled with them! 🙂

Summer Cycle

exif data rob moses canon 6D 28mm 1.8Calgary has some nice biking paths around the city. There are some nice views and great places to stop along the way. I personally wouldn’t be caught cruising around on the paths right now as it is currently 16°F out and I’m sure I’d freeze to death and if that didn’t kill me I’d surely hit some ice and crash into something that would take me out haha. However, when summer hits, these paths are wonderful! ;).

Canon vs Sony 70-200mm

I have been shooting a decent amount with my Sony a7R these days and I have run into some auto focus speed issues along the way. I have found that Sony’s hit rate of moving subjects is noticeably lower than what I have been used to with my Canon gear. This issue rang especially true while I was shooting some soccer this summer with the Sony E-mount 70-200mm f4 G OSS. Since I have a Canon EF 70-200mm f4 IS I thought it might be interesting to do a little real world test of these to lenses head to head. Even thought I had an idea of how the test would go from my past experiences with both lenses, I was surprised at end result of this one.

For this video I employed my two children to help me out. My 6 year old son Joshua was my 2nd camera man and my 4 year old son Cameron was the test subject :). Oh and by the way, if you have a youtube account please subscribe to my channel. I am going to try and do a lot more videos than I have been doing. YouTube.com/user/RobMoses 👍

People in Beaulieu Gardens

Sony A7R 70-200mm exif data Rob Moses Photography

The weather has been getting pretty nice around Calgary these days and the people are getting out there and enjoying it! When the people come out, so do I ;). Gotta get them street shots while the street shootings hot!

For these shots I just grabbed nice little seat for my self on the grass, framed up my shot and waited for the people to walk by. A friend of mine lent me his Sony A7R mirrorless camera, so I was using that a long with a Sony 70-200mm f4 G OSS. It’s a pretty slick little set up that produces great results.

Bit Of A Challenge

Camera: Canon 6D & 70-200mm f/2.8 at 200mm ~ Settings: f/11 – 1/320th – ISO 400

So the other day fellow photographer and blogger Steve Boer (www.steveboer.com) passed on 5 day black and white photo challenge to me. The idea is to post black and white photos for 5 days straight. I love black and white, but there aint no way I’m posting 5 black and white shots back to back haha. So I told him I’d post one for one day and that’s the best could do. However, I decided to post 2 (on one day).

With all that said, onto the pictures. These two photos were clearly shot on different days. The first one was shot on a more mild day and the 2nd one a much more cold day (yesterday). You could probably guess from the snow on the ground and the guys ski goggles! lol. This is how I feel about biking, if it’s so cold you gotta strap on the ol ski goggles to take a cruise, then it’s to damn cold for biking! ;).

PS, Although these types of challenges are fun, I probably won’t make a habit of doing them when passed on to me. Just an FYI so I don’t hurt anyones feeling in the future. 

 

Biking Action

These are a couple of pictures I took last summer of my father in-law during his biking part in the Penticton, BC triathlon. If it was me, I’d be cruising on in to the finish line about 10 hours after the race ended lol. Big up to everyone that can do these crazy races!

Winter or Summer ?

The weather has gone completely INSANE in Calgary the last few days. I have been waking up to WINTER! Yet it is still 100% summer! I have experienced the most awful weather since moving here haha, but I have yet to snap and pack my bags to head back to the coast. I’m sure that day will come, but it aint today ;). Here are a couple of pictures from yesterdays winter blast.

The Hastings Building

On my recent trip to Port Townsend, Washington I was most excited to see this particular building in person for myself. I had looked at pictures of it many times online and had fallen in love with it the moment I saw it. I love this type of old Victorian architecture and seeing it in person last week did not disappoint! It is a beautiful building in an equally beautiful town.

Peace on the Peace Bridge

If you like a futuristic bridge, then the Peace Bridge here in Calgary, Canada is the one for you! I shot these photos with a fisheye lens. When I was getting the one of the guy taking a picture of the girl tossing up the “Peace” sign, I almost ran right into them because I was so close! haha. Thankfully they were cool and we had a little laugh :).

Around The Bridge Shooting Mobile

Last week I decided to dig out my Sony QX100 and snap a couple of photos with it when I was walking downtown one day. In the first shot, I was crouching on the grassy hill by the street waiting for a biker to come by, when this guy came zooming I got the shot I was after :). In the 2nd shot I was perched on this little bridge look out and just took the shot when I had a few interesting people in the shot to hold down the bottom edge of the shot.

If you’re not familiar with the Sony QX100, it attaches (or not) to your phone via wifi and uses your phone as the view finder. It then saves a 18mp shot to a micro SD and a 2mp shot to your phone for sharing (there are many other saving options). The images are pretty good considering what it is, but the lens/camera is not exactly that mobile, as it does not fit comfortably in your pants pocket.

My Favourite Bridge

I wouldn’t call this a straight up shot of the Centre Street Bridge in Calgary, but you get the idea. It’s old, has style and is beautiful! Much like my self lol, kidding of course! (I’m not old) LOL ;).  Ok, ok, ok, for real though, this bridge is awesome and when you cross it in either direction you’re in a good place, just on the edge of my neighbourhood or downtown! Can’t go wrong really ;).
