His First Real Camera

I gave my 6 year old son Cameron his first real camera today. He had been asking me for one for the past 6 months and he was very clear he wanted one like mine with a proper viewfinder, so no point and shoots would do. I told him I would be keeping my eye out for a good deal on a camera for him and today was the day. Cameron is now the happy owner of a good old Canon 20D! A camera I have a lot of experience with, as I shot one for a very long time back in the 20D days. He loves the camera and I think it will suit him just fine while he dips his toes into the wonderful world of photography.

When I gave Cameron the camera he was super excited and happy! I quickly showed him the basics and he ran out the door to shoot photos. I caught up with him about 45 minutes later and he was still wondering around the block taking pictures. We passed by this tree and he ask me to hold his camera. He shot up the tree, I gave him is camera back and he started taking pictures of this dog that was sitting in the grass. I’d say he’s got the right idea about getting a unique shot. Who knows, we just might have another photographer in the family. 🙂

1000th Instagram Post!

I hit my 1000th post on Instagram yesterday! I though I’d do something a little fun for that post and put this picture together. I shot the photo with my Sony A7ii & 24-70mm sitting on a railing on a 10 second, 5 shot sequence timer. I sent the picture straight to my phone and added the text using the Moldiv app. If your on Instagram give me a follow! I’m @RobMoses there :).

That Shaw TV Thing

The People of Calgary

Hey guys (& gals), here is that Shaw TV thing I mentioned in the last couple posts! It was produced by Shiva Jahanshah (@ShivaJahanshah). We filmed this at the Core shopping centre downtown in Calgary. For people who have never been here, it is just what it sounds like, the major shopping centre in the downtown core :). We started off with a little interview and then they had do my thing and talk to some strangers. I think I sound a little weird in the very beginning, but what are ya gonna do haha.

Thank you so much for putting that together Shiva! We gotta get you on here one of these days ;).

A Laugh, A Jump & A Bump

It was insanely cold in Calgary yesterday, so rather than brave the Canadian elements I’d opted to make it an In-Day. My 2 sons and I decided shooting some photos in the basement would be a fun time and was it ever! We had some laughs, jumps and only one person got hurt! haha. Both boys fell down together and my older son Joshua hit his face on a light stand, ouch! He was trooper though and keep on with the shoot. He’s got a little bruise on his right cheek as a result, but he’s  good :).
