Happy Halloween

Now this is one heck of costume! I saw this person walking around downtown in Calgary this past weekend. I spotted this big happy looking red thing walking down the street about a block away. I quickly scurried over to the corner of the street I thought they were going to cross at, then a …

Cat

This is my little pal who goes by many names in our house. My two favourite are “Cat” and “Stinky”😅. This picture was really random. It was just a test shot and not a lot of thought or time went into it. I kind of like how it turned out though so it thought I …

Summer City

Summer time in the city is always the best! This is especially true for Calgary. The air is warm and the city is alive, a perfect set up for good picture taking. I shot this one on Wednesday night from Scotsman Hill. I used my Sony a7ii and Nikkor 55mm f/2.8 micro manual focus lens. …

Melissa for Coffee

This is Melissa, she is one of the realtors I work with. Yesterday I heard her say she was heading to a coffee shop by our office, so I cased her down so I could get a picture of her. She didn’t want to have her picture taken since I didn’t give her any warning, …

Night Over Water

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 …

Arcade Time!

While my son Cameron and I where up in Edmonton the other week we decided to swing by the West Edmonton Mall to hit the arcade. Cameron ripped through about $35 pretty quick haha. He definitely had a good time though :). Thanks for stopping by, Rob

Pre-Focus Run

I like getting pictures of people running from this part of the city. The skyline background just does it for me somehow. On this day I posed a bit of challenge to myself. I wanted to get a shot of someone running, well, , , a woman running, because people like pictures of women running …

Rick with a Canon FD 85mm

This is Rick and he is one of the Realtors I work with. Rick wanted new picture for his blog and I wanted to try shooting headshot with my 1970’s Canon 85mm f/1.8 on a Sony A7ii. Shooting such shallow depth of field with these old manual focus lenses definitely slows things down. Shooting in this …

Cammy – Manual Focus

Camera: Sony A7R & Canon FD 85mm f/1.8 ~ Settings: f/1.8 – 1/1600th – ISO 100 Yesterday evening my son Cammy and I went for a little bike ride around the block and I shot this photo of him. I took the picture with a Sony A7R with a 1970’s Canon FD 85mm f/1.8 manual …

Winter or Summer ?

The weather has gone completely INSANE in Calgary the last few days. I have been waking up to WINTER! Yet it is still 100% summer! I have experienced the most awful weather since moving here haha, but I have yet to snap and pack my bags to head back to the coast. I’m sure that …

Old Camera & Older Lens

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter than you might already know I got my hands on an old Nikon D70 with a Sigma 10-20mm lens for $75! I have been playing around with it lately just for fun and have gotten some good pictures with it. I put my old 1970’s 50mm 1.4 …

28mm Manual Focus

I shot this photo with an old Vivitar 28mm f/2.8 Close Focus RL Edition lens. The lens is a Nikon Mount and I got a Nikon to EOS adapter from ebay to use it on my Canon bodies. This lens is crazy sharp wide open and at every aperture. I think it goes with out saying …
