More Buildings & Lights

The Calgary skyline is forever changing. There is a new building going up that is beside the bright one in the middle that is going to be awesome. The new building kind of turns as it goes up. I’m sure that’s going to be a wonderful building to get ultra wide angle shots of. There is also another big project going on near the bottom of the photo where the bright light is. I’m not sure what’s happening, but they got what looks like the beginning of a band shell or something along those lines. Whatever it is they are doing down there I’m sure it’s going to be great! I can’t wait to see it when it’s done, I’ll probably have to bust out the ol fisheye for that one. 😉

Sunburst City

I’m a sucker for a good sunburst and I’ll try to grab one whenever I can. The thing I really love about these pictures is that sunburst is the reflection of the sun off of a pretty cool looking building! If your a city guy (or girl) like me, then that’s what it’s all about ;).

Oh ya, and that dude that’s practicing his karate moves is hilarious! 🤣

Steam Plant

exif-data-rob-moses-sony-a7-24-70mmThis amazing place is a wonderful restaurant in Spokane, Washington called Steam Plant. The name of the restaurant pretty much says it all. As you have probably guessed, the restaurant was originally a actual steam plant. I love when people take old factories and stuff and turn them into something new.

Blue & Red

Sony a7ii & Canon FD 50mm 1.2

Everyone seems to shoot photos at this bridge in Calgary, and why not its beautiful! I have been here a bunch of times, but on this occasion I decided to stand balancing on the back part of one of the benches there to get a little extra hight. I shot this one handheld with my Sony a7ii & Canon FD 50mm f/1.2. I can’t remember my exact settings, I think I was shooting around f/5.6 or so. I have said this before, but the image stabilization on the a7ii is just wonderful.

Oh and that title! Well you know, blue night and a red bridge. 😉

Pre-Focus Run

Aperture f/1.4

Aperture f/1.4

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 a lot better than pictures of dudes, sorry dudes haha. Anyhow, I also wanted there to be a bit of shallow depth of field in the photo. This was going to be more difficult then normal since I was shooting with a (circa 1973) Canon FD 50mm 1.4 manual focus lens. Shooting with the 50 meant I had to get pretty close to the person running by and getting them in focus with a shallow depth of field was the even bigger challenge.

As soon as I found the spot I wanted to shoot the photo from I saw this girl coming my way. I paid extra close attention to where on the path she was running and then did my best to pre-focus at the distance I estimated she would be from my camera when she got in front of me. When shooting such a photo I also pay attention to body position. I like to get people when they are in mid stride. With zero time to spare I had chose my focus distance, she ran into the frame and right when she made that stride I clicked the shutter! I admit, she wasn’t in perfect focus, but she was close enough ;).

City Sculpture

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye ~ Settings: f/16 – 1/80th – ISO 640

Calgary spends a lot of money on public art and this particular piece is one of my favourite. I’m not really sure what it’s suppose to be (if anything), but I like it :).

Stop and Enjoy the View

Camera: Nikon D300s & 70-210mm F4 at 70mm ~ Settings: f/16 – 1/125th – ISO 200

I was out the other day shooting photos with my Nikon D300s and an old lens that has kind of a so-so reputation. The lens is a circa 1986 – 87 Nikon AF 70-210mm F4. I personally like the lens, but I have a thing for shooting photos with funny old lenses :).

Anyhow, just as I was enjoying the view of the city, this girl stopped near me and decided to do the same while drinking her coffee. That building behind her is called the “Saddledome” and it is where the local NHL Hockey team (The Calgary Flames) plays.

Calgary 1st

Camera: Nikon D300s & 70-210mm f/4-5.6D at 210mm ~ Settings: f/9 – 1/250th – ISO 800

I shot this photos the other day on my way home from work. It is a look down 1st Street SW downtown in Calgary. These types of pictures are always fun for me, because I love the city and watching people buzzing around. The picture has a nice mix of different types of architecture and a few little things here and there that hold my attention, so I enjoy looking at it. I hope you do too!

Mild Winter Moment

Camera: Nikon D300s & Sigma 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye ~ Settings: f/10 – 1/80th – ISO 500

I was downtown yesterday meeting a guy about thing. I had my camera with me so I grabbed a couple quick shots. The weather in Calgary this winter has been pretty good lately. As you can see from the pictures it’s not exactly what comes to mind when one thinks of winter in the city. It was 48 degrees (9C) in Calgary yesterday and it looks to be staying around that mark for the next little while. That is good photography weather and I plan on taking advantage of it :).

Dirty Look Down 1st

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L @ 23mm ~ Settings: f/20 – 25 seconds – ISO 200

This is 1st Street, downtown in Calgary. I shot this from a pedestrian over pass. As you can tell from the picture, the window of the over pass was quite dirty! But what are you gonna do? You can’t win em all ;).

Through The Skylight

I shot this photo over the weekend on a  cloudy day. I am sure it would be much better if it was nice day, because the contrast of the blue sky would be great. I might just have to go back another time. Actually, maybe a twilight shot would be even better! We’ll see :).

The Skipping Stone Bridge

I have been meaning to make my way down to the new Skipping Stone Bridge for some night shots for a while now and finally made it out last night. Although you can’t tell from this picture, I can assure you it was freezing out! Even with the cold, I am glad I went out. The view from the bridge is great and I’m a sucker for a good city view.

I think this picture looks a lot better in a larger size. I suggest stopping by my Facebook Page at Facebook.com/RobMosesPhotography to view it in a much larger size.
