River Rocks

Lens: Vivitar 28mm f2 @f2

I was down by the river the other night shooting some photos. I came across this stack of rocks set up just perfectly to shoot a photo. I was using my Vivitar manual focus lens and it was the perfect lens for this shot. The lens blurred the photo just enough to give good separation from the background, but you are still able to make out what is back there. I love those blurry bits!

Sunny Beach

Screen Shot 2017-05-20 at 3.11.10 PM

I took this picture while I was down in Cancun Mexico last. This particular beach seemed to get a ton of sun and had some really beautiful blue water. The sand was nice, the people were cool and I loved it! I kinda wish I was there right now to be honest with you. 😎

Bow River Night

Shot at f/16

I shot this one on Saturday night from underneath the Skipping Stone Bridge on St. Patricks Island (in Calgary). I was using my Fujifilm X-E1 with an old Canon FD mount Vivitar 28mm f/2 close focus lens. The camera and lens performed wonderfully together. This shot is straight out of the camera (other than a slight touch of straightening). Getting pictures like this straight out of the camera is the exact reason I got interested in Fujifilm cameras and I must say they are living up to the hype!

The 2nd picture I had to color correct a touch because under the bridge there are these blue LED lights and it looked really crazy haha. I didn’t spend a ton of time doing it either as you can probably tell ;).

Spring Nights

Lens: Canon FD 50mm f/1.2

Spring nights in Calgary can be beautiful. The city lights always do the right thing for me and this night was no different. The lights were bright and the sky was amazing, can’t ask for much more than that to take a nice city picture.

That Sunset

Canon FD 50mm 1.2 shot @f/16

I shot this photo on Saturday night. The sunset was amazing, but there was a lot of parking lot in the middle of the picture that I didn’t like. I thought I’d hop in there and maybe make the picture a little more interesting. Not to mention giving me a change to show off my cool new Cultural Blends hoodie.😜

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.

The Path To Glory!

As you walk up to this path/bridge that takes you down to this amazing dock in Portland, you begin to see the amazing view and unique texture of your soundings. The ruff dock, the slick path if it’s been raining, the glassy or raindrop filled river and of course the amazing skyline view. It’s all here in this one spot for you to take in for as long as your heart desires. It’s a wonderful place and when you set foot on that dock for the first time, it is nothing short of glorious.

RIU Hotel

Sony a7ii

When I was down in Cancun last I walked by this hotel many times. I like the way it looks, wide and simple. This place was right next to the hotel I was staying at, so one night I went over and shot this photo from a quarantined off staircase on an old mall. The staircase gave me just a little extra hight that I needed to get a good view of the street and hotel together.

DIY Deadcat Mic Windscreen

I made a DIY video on how to make a Deadcat style windscreen out of the tail of a stuffed cat (teddy bear) haha. I did a couple tests and it worked really good! If you care about your video’s audio you might like this video. 🙂

Spokane Nights

I love wandering the streets of Spokane at night looking for photos. Riverfront park is probably one of my favourite parts of the city. There are tons of great locations to shoot photos in a very condensed area. This view is one of my favourite of the city. I love locations where I can sit, enjoy an urban park by the water with the view of a beautiful city.

Spokane River Warmth

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-24-70mm-l-f2-8I was kicking around the Spokane River this weekend. The weather was pretty warm and it made for a leisurely stroll around the river. I’m not sure what the temperature was, but it was warm enough that I wasn’t at all concerned about comfortably at any point. When you got November weather like that, it’s easy to hang out and take pictures all night long. 🙂

Scarves & Flowers

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-50mm-1-4I was kicking around Esther Short Park in Vancouver, Washington one day when I noticed the statue of the old guy was wearing this beautiful knitted scarf. Although it did look a little odd with his iron suit, I thought it was wonderful. And to top it off, this nice little statue girl was giving him a real flower. Was a good day in the park for these two I’d say. 😉

Big City Sky

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-70-200mm-f2-8-isIf your a photographer in Calgary and you didn’t make it out to shoot last night, you missed out! The sky was amazing at dusk and my good friend Nathan Somes and I were out there taking it all in. The idea to shoot was a bit of a last minute thing and we were racing out the door to make it before the sky went black on us. Clearly we made it, and just in the nick of time!

After we shot this location we went to shoot a couple more and we saw these people shooting off some little fireworks. I just happen to have my 2X extender on at the time and was able to grab a quick shot of that too! It was a good night to be out shooting photos. 🙂
