Calgary Wedding Indoors: Madiha & Raheel

exif-data-rob-moses-settings-canon-5d-mark-iii-ef-28-70mm-f2-8-lAs you can imagine a wedding in Calgary in February is going to be indoors for the most part. Mariah and Raheel’s wedding was no exception, well except for this one picture of course! haha. We pretty much just ran out the back door of the hotel, shot this photo and ran back in! The rest of the wedding was held inside the hotel. This wedding was a short one for me, but it was 100 miles and hour the whole time!

When you only got so much time to get your shots there is a lot of quick shooting invovled and you tend to move around a little fast than you might normally go. At this wedding there wasn’t a moment I wasn’t taking pictures. Ok well, I did stop for 5 minutes to enjoy some of the amazing indian food! I’m not a crazy person after all, if there is indian food around you can bet I’ll be hold’n down a plate with the best of them ;). So after my blazing fast meal it was back to the shooting! Indian weddings are always so much fun, I didn’t get to stick around this one for the partying, but hopefully next time :).

Not a bad spot to spend a Friday evening! A sunset by the river is always a good time in my book :).

Oh and happy fathers day to all the dads out there! ;).

Old Camera Park

exif data rob moses nikon d2xs 50mm 1.8GEven in the middle of winter, Princes Island Park has people buzzing around. I shot this photo on my way home yesterday evening just as the sun started to set. I shot this photo with Nikon D2Xs & a 50mm 1.8G. Even though the D2Xs is an older camera now, it still performs wonderfully and is a real joy to use. I am no stranger to old cameras, or new ones and I divide my time up between the two types. I never got caught up in the attitude that the latest and greatest in cameras would get me the best pictures. For me, how the camera performs and how my images look at the end is what is important, not the latest or what other people think a good camera is.

A Friends Camera

rob moses exif data canon 6d 70-200mm f4 isI was out shooting the skyline with a friend of mine over the weekend when this idea popped into my head. At first I shot this photo at f4 and slowly made my way to f14. At f4 you couldn’t tell what was in front of the camera, but here in this shot I think it’s a little more clear :).

Tamilla Working

exif data rob moses canon 6d 50mm 1.4I did a photo shoot with this lovely young woman over the weekend. If you’re a regular to this blog then you might recognize Tamilla from a recent wedding I shot. And also her engagement photos before that. Anyhow, Tamilla needed some photos for her website, so we made our way around some indoor locations (because it’s freezing in Calgary right now) and shot some photos.

You can see Tamilla’s wedding photos HERE and her engagement photos HERE.

I also put together a little 15 second video clip for Instagram from the photo shoot. It’s here if you want to check that out too. 🙂

Frosty Climb City

exif data Canon 5D mark iii 70-200mm Rob MosesI had to climb a pretty big fence for this shot. I had driven by this location a long time ago and thought I might be able to get a good shot if I was to climb up the fence. I just happen to be driving near that location again today and I thought with all the frost on the trees and the clear sky, it might be worth trying out. I’m glad I made the stop, because I love a picture with buildings mountains together :).

If you check out this link by around 11:30am on Sunday you can watch the Periscope video of me climbing haha. Climbing Periscope Video

Rings of Fire

canon 50d tamron 17-50mm vc rob moses exif dataLast night my friend Nathan and I took the Skipping Stone Bridge in Calgary with a chain and some steel wool. Nathan had wanted to shoot some of these type of photos for about a year and we finally decided to get out and do it. We would both set up our cameras and get our setting and composition the way we wanted, then Nathan would get in position, light the thing on fire and let er rip! On the first attempt the baking whisk that was holding the steel wool flew off the chain almost immediately and flew over the side of the bridge! haha. Luckily the whisk landed on the shore and not into the river. After a quick retrieval mission, the fun times were back on. 🙂

The Minion Tourist

rob moses exif data Canon 50D Tamron 17-50mm VCI don’t know about you, but I like these little Minions! This little toy belongs to my son and I thought it would be a fun picture to take as if the Minion was a tourist haha. The 2nd shot of him was from inside my car. The Minion was standing on the edge of the passenger side door and there is a tree with lights behind him.

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.

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.

Doable Winter

exif data Canon 550D t2i Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 VC rob mosesWe are finally having some winter weather I can actually deal with in Calgary! It has been around 7C (44F) mark for the past couple weeks and it is only getting warmer in the forecast! I don’t know how long it can stay like this, but I’ll take whatever I can get. The warm weather makes for good photo taking! I shot this one morning while I was out for a little walk last weekend. I shot this same photo before the guy came along and I just wasn’t feeling it with no one in the picture. Lucky for me a few minutes later this guy came strolling and long and I got a few shots off as he crossed the bridge. These kind of pictures are always better with person in the frame.

Night Over Water

Lens: Canon FD 20mm f/2.8 SSC

Kind of a random shot here. I took this picture one night back in October. The street that runs a long the river is quite nice in the summer, but I have yet to get a good shot of it. Maybe this summer I’ll get a good picture. This long exposure will have to do for now. 🙂
