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↖︎.

Portland Vlogs

I took a trip down to Portland last weekend and shot a little video of my trip. I met up with an old friend of mine from Vancouver and my brother in-law. If I was on my own I probably would have daily vlogged the trip, but when your with friends you can’t just be filming the whole time or you won’t have time to visit 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

Drop The Bass

I was out kicking around the streets of Calgary last weekend shooting some photos with a friend of mine. I spotted this guy from across the street and knew I had to get a shot of him. He was drop’n the bass on some funky tunes and was real cool about a picture. Love people like that!

He was sleeping there for a few hours and after a while this Magpie bird came over and started hanging out with it haha. Pretty cool thing to see out your bedroom window 🙂

Guys on a Mountain

I was hiking up a mountain one day this past summer and I saw these guys sitting on the edge of a cliff having a nice little rest for them selves. I thought it looked like a moment, so I shot a quick photo. I really should have taken one of their emails so I could send them the picture. I know I’d like a picture of me and my buddy sitting on the side of a mountain! Maybe they’ll come across this blog randomly one day.

Double Slide

I was down at the park with some friends and my family on Friday evening when I took these. My sons were having quite the time on the slide and decided doubling up on the slide might be a fun time. Looks like they were right. 😉

Cat

a6000 & Soligor 28mm f/2.8 @ 2.8

This is my little pal who goes by many names in our house. My two favourite are “Cat” and “Stinky”😅. This picture was really random. It was just a test shot and not a lot of thought or time went into it. I kind of like how it turned out though so it thought I would share it. I shot this photo on a Sony a6000 with an old manual focus Canon FD mount Soligor 28mm f/2.8. Pretty good combination if you ask me.

Marie in the Rain

I took a trip out to Vernon BC this weekend because my sister in-law Marie was graduating high school. All of the grads go this park in the town to take pictures, so I met up with Marie there. Of course, I by the time we found each other, I was able to shoot ONE photo before it started raining cats and dogs! Like you might as well be standing in the shower rain, it was ridiculous! I had Marie use an umbrella and we also shot some other ones of family under a tree. The rain was a major pain, but it did make it kind of fun :).

These 3 boys have been skateboarding around together for the past couple of years. This year they have been on their boards more than ever. I have found myself skating around the neighbourhood with them and remembering my own childhood of skateboarding. I thought I better get a picture of the original squad together before they grow up even more!

From left to right is my sons Cameron and Joshua and their best pal Leo.

The Host

A couple of weeks ago I went to a BBQ at a friends place down the street. This young lady was our gracious host :). I didn’t take too many pictures, because I figured I’d better talk to people instead of being “camera guy” the whole time haha.

Run In The Sun

Camera: Canon 6D & 70-200mm f/2.8 @ 200mm ~ Settings: f/2.8 – 1/250th – ISO 100

On my way home yesterday evening I made a quick stop to shoot a few photos. This girl ran right by me on the sidewalk before she looped around in front of my lens. I noticed right away that her dog was carrying a piece of wood in his mouth haha. I guess it would be a good thing to have if the opportunity to play came up :).

A Seat By The Pond

This spot is a particular favourite of mine in Calgary. The pond is in Princes Island Park and is a nice place to grab a seat and relax. I think theses 2 people would agree that this is the place to be :).
