In Camera City View

I shot this photo on Friday night from Rotary Park in Calgary. The camera in the picture is my Mamiya 645 1000s with a 80mm f/1.9. I had the camera set up on a tripod and had another tripod set up higher over the pictured camera. I shot this photo with a Sony A7R with a Nikon 55mm f/2.8 Micro manual focus lens. After my first test shot I knew I was going to need some external light, because the street light that was on in the park was super orange and the grass was a very ugly version of a pumpkin orange. Since I didn’t bring any lighting I just whipped out my trusty iPhone and used the flashlight on there to paint the scene while the 30 exposure was on. I think it all worked out pretty good!

Abandoned Lakefront

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-28mm-1-8A friend of mine took me out to this abandoned farm to shoot some photos. The place was pretty spectacular and we got a lot of good pictures there. This building was especially interesting to me, because when they built it the owners must have been so happy to have this nice structure built right by the lake. I bet they never thought in a million years it would ever come to this. Life is crazy, better use it all up like it’s gonna end up like this.

Stranger in the Grass

Sony a7ii & 55mm

Sony a7ii

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!

Flashy Horse

rob moses exif data canon 6d 50mm 1.4I have wanted to shoot this photo for a while now. This little public park is at one of the train stations downtown. One day when I got off the train at this stop I was checking out these iron art pieces. The idea for this photo came to me soon after that visit. The reason it took me so long to get this shot is it was quite the production and a bit of hassle to get. I had to pack up my camera with a few different lenses (incase 50mm didn’t look right), flashes, flash triggers, 2 light stands and a tripod. As you can image, walking around with this much gear isn’t exactly a good time haha. Anyhow, I’m glad I finally got the shot, because it is exactly how I pictured it in my mind.

The set up for this shot was 2 Canon 580EX ii’s behind the horse. I set the flashes 2 stops over and shot the photo about 2 stops under.

Twin Sheds

Canon EOS Rebel T3i & EF 50mm f:1.8 mark i 1 original exif data

I was driving in the country one day when I zipped by these random sheds in this field. I kept on driving a little ways when I decided it might make a good picture. A quick stop and U-turn later I was walking through these strange bushes trying not get my shoes dirty haha. The sheds might not be identical twins, but they are close enough ;).
