Little Skateboarder – Stills & Video

On Saturday afternoon my 6 year old son Cameron and I went for a little skate downtown. We were heading to the very popular Peace Bridge to get a shot of Cameron on his skateboard in the middle of the bridge. However, when we got there the wind was blowing like crazy and it was kind of a bad scene. We decided to hit the streets in search of a new spot to shoot a photo. We found a spot with smooth cement, places to leave our gear and set up our cameras with very little interruption from passerbyers.

Not only did we shoot photos, but we were also rolling video on the whole thing for my vlog. I didn’t realize how many times I had Cam push off on his skateboard for the photo until I was going over the video footage at home. I didn’t count how many times he did it, but it was a at least 30 times! For a 6 year old to have that kind of patience on a photo shoot is amazing. I also noticed he took direction very well. I was super impressed by all of this at the time, but even more so after the fact. I think he’d make a good little actor or model if he wanted to go down that road. For now I think we’ll just stick to the skateboarding though ;).

Beautiful Palace

exif-data-rob-moses-sony-a7ii-zeiss-24-70mmI took to the streets one night in Cancun to shoot some long exposures. This was the very first picture I took that night and I could have easily just walked right back into my hotel and been happy haha. They got some really beautiful resorts around Cancun, and this one is one of my favourite.

Cancun Reflection

exif-data-settings-rob-moses-sony-a7ii-24-70mm-zeissI shot this one in the hotel zone of Cancun Mexico. I had to walk across this ledge of a building to set up the shot. The window used in the reflection had some type of mirror coating on it and it worked wonders for the photo.

I have added a shot from my Instagram account showing where I shot this photo from. You can see the window I used for this photo on the further side of me. I was set up at the far corner.

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 :).

Michelle

exif data rob moses Canon 6D 70-200mmMy wife Michelle needed a head shot for something or other, so I took this picture of her yesterday. The lighting set up I used consisted of 3 Canon Speedlites. I had one 580EX ii to camera right shot into a white bounce umbrella, one 580EX ii to camera left shot into a smaller white bounce umbrella and one 580EX point down from above for a hair light.

Fun in Port Townsend

While I was in Port Townsend, Washington this past summer I was out with my 2 boys and wanted to get a picture of us together. I set up my camera on tripod and used my Canon RC1 remote to shoot the photo. I can’t remember what we where laughing at, but it was a good time and memory, and that’s all that matters :).

Happy Cammy

This shot with an iPhone 4s.

Yesterday I decided it was a good day to take a picture of my younger son Cammy. He is always a good sport when it comes to getting his picture taken, so this shot didn’t take to long :).

The picture on the right just shows the set up I used for this photo. I had a Canon 580EX ii Speedlite shooting into that white bounce umbrella. I was using that heavy Manfrotto tripod instead of a light stand so the wind wouldn’t tip the set up over (I have had that happen before). I triggered the flash with Yongnuo YN-622C transmitters.

Bright City Sky

A little before Christmas my friend and I went out to shoot some photos when we came across this little lookout park with this nice view of the city. It’s a little uncommon of a view of Calgary, so I kind of like it for that reason. I do prefer the view looking south of the city, but this is nice too. I mainly like this vantage point because you also get a good view of the neighbourhood bellow. Anyhow, kind of an odd picture, but it’s not bad ;).

Big Head in The City

Calgary has a lot of public art and this massive head is one of my favourite. You can go inside of it, but you cant get one hand or foot onto it to climb with out a security guard running out to tell you there is no climbing! haha. If your ever in Calgary, it’s worth a look ;).
