Bouncing Flash

exif-data-rob-moses-5d-mark-iii-28mm-1-8This is Chris, I was over at his house last night for dinner. I knew he lived in the building that was off white in color, so I thought I’d see how the flashed looked bouncing it off the wall. I used a 28mm lens so I could take in some of the surrounding buildings. I should have moved in a little closer to Chris though, because I ended up cropping in a bit on this shot. Other than that I think it worked out pretty good. I bounced the flash off the wall to camera right. The bounced flash looks soft and even, can’t ask for much more than that.

Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Mustachio

rob-moses-exif-data-canon-5d-mark-iii-50mm-1-4I was kicking around the Kensington neighbourhood here in Calgary on Saturday night when I spotted this guy on the street. You could see the mustachio pop’n off right away and there was no way I wasn’t going to get a picture. I just walked up to him and said “Hey man, can I take your picture?” He said “Sure!” he smiled, I took the shot and it was all over in about 8 to 10 seconds. I love these kind of quick interactions with strangers on the street, it always makes for a more interesting night.

Room With a View

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-24-70mm-f2-8-lJust taking in the view from my hotel room’s deck in Spokane, Washington. I dialled in my settings and handed my camera off to my wife to take this one for me. It really was a nice view and I was fired up about the sweater I bought the night before at the Spokane Chiefs game ;). Always a good time in Spokane, I love that place.

Enjoy The View

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-24-105mm-f4-isSometimes you just gotta have a seat and enjoy the beauty around you. When you’re in Lake Louise there is no shortage of places to do just that. I think this particular spot is definitely one of the best places to take it all in.

I didn’t know this guy, but I thought it was a good look the way he was sitting by the lake. I ran up behind him and shot about 5 photos. I was shooting at 24mm, so you can image how close I was to him. After I shot the first photo, he looked back at me and I shot my second frame. Clearly he didn’t mind because he just turned his head back and kept enjoying the view. 🙂

Waiting for the storm

Waiting for the Storm

rob moses exif data canon 6d 50mm 1.4I shot this one on Saturday night. It had been raining all day and the clouds looked rather menacing. I thought rather than just another city shot, I might hop in front of the camera to add a little something to the photo. I was shooting with a friend of mine and he had a 430EX Speedlite on him with some Radio Poppers flash triggers, so we set the flash up. We used the one flash to camera left with a small defuser on the unit. I would have preferred it if there was more lights on in the buildings, but I still like the way it turned out.

Just got a couple of people having their picture taken twice! I doubt they will ever see this one though ;). I shot this one in manual focus with my Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 at 1.2. I love that lens! The 2nd photo isn’t as cool, but I thought it was still worth sharing.

Just barely caught these two walking by. I wanted to get the front of them, but I could get my settings were I needed them to be in time. I shot this with my awesome 1970’s Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 wide open. I took 2 shots, the first one was a little out of focus and this one hit pretty close :). The 2nd shot is just a random picture from the same set up and same night.

Stranger in the Grass

I was at one of my favourite skyline view locations in Calgary getting a shot of the city yesterday. While I was there I noticed this man sitting in the grass reading. It looked like the scene out of a movie or something, so I thought it might make a good picture. I walked up the guy and asked him if he minded me taking his picture while he was reading. Lucky for me he was a very friendly person and clearly didn’t mind having his picture taken. After I shot the photo he ask me if I could send him the picture and of course I said I would be happy to do so. A phone number and a text later and I was on my way. Thanks for being so easy going Nick!

Bench with a View

exif data canon 6d 70-200mm rob mosesThis guy’s looking back at my last post like, “Damn, wish I was there right about now!” 😅 I was shooting this location with a friend of mine and I got him to hop on the bench and take a look around for me. This location as such a great view, but I though the picture would be more interesting if he was looking else where.

Down By The River

Buildings Over Here

rob moses exif data Canon 50D Tamron 17-50mm VCI usually shoot photos of Calgary from the other side of town, because I think it looks nicer over there. From time to time I feel the need to shake things up a bit, so I grabbed this shot from the south side on my way home yesterday.
