An Old Sunset

This picture was just sitting on my computer for the past few years. I was never planning on doing anything with it, but I needed something for my Instagram account yesterday and I just decided to post this one. It’s not a bad picture, but I just didn’t excite me. However, there is a peaceful feel to the photo that does have it’s own quality. Figured I might as well just toss it up here too :).

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.

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.

Stop and Enjoy the View

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.

Mild Winter Moment

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 :).

Camera – iPhone 4s

Last weekend I was at my local Starbucks enjoying a coffee and testing out a new photo editing app (Pixelmator, verdict is still out). Once my editing time was up / coffee was done, I started walking home. When I got to the top of the hill I stopped to take in the sunset that was falling behind the city. Naturally I had a camera with me, so I pulled it out and put on my Nikon 100mm f2.8 AIS (manual focus) lens and shot this photo. I love this view of the city and I think this shot reflects the beauty of this vantage point.

Not Waiting For A Train

Yesterday evening I was out running an errand and naturally, I had my camera with me. So before I headed home I decided to drop in on a subway station and see if I could get a picture. This lady was waiting for the train on the closest side to the escalator I came down. I waited for a train to pull in on the other side and snapped the first photo. I was happy with that picture, but I saw the next train was coming 1 minute away, so I though why not wait for that one and get one more picture. I’m glad I did, because I rather like both shots. Oh, and if you’re wondering about the title, I wasn’t taking the train, I just went down there to shoot some photos :).

Nikon 50mm 1.8 vs 1.4 Video

I made this video yesterday that gives my thoughts on the Nikon 50mm 1.8D vs 1.4D. The test shots were very un-scientific. All pictures were taken hand-held, one after the other and the lighting in the room did not change.

This video was shot with a Canon T3i & 28mm 1.8 and a 5D mark iii & 16-35L. Sound was recorded with Rode Videomic Pro & a Blue Yeti Microphone.

The following pictures are the shots used in the video in the order they appear.

This Girl Again

One day when I was shooting photos on the Centre Street Bridge in Calgary, I noticed a girl running whom I had taken a picture of not once, but twice before up the hill at Crescent road! haha. By the time I realized who she was, I had missed my opportunity for a front shot, so I quickly turned and took one from the back just to keep the set going haha. I hope she stumbles upon this blog one day and finds a picture of her self :).

Ramah – Sudan to Calgary

More People of Calgary Action!

The People of Calgary

I met this fellow on a popular pathway by the river near Edwothy Park. I had just arrived, got my stuff ready and he was the first person to walk in my direction. While he was walking towards me I noticed he was wearing headphones, so my first thought was to just let him pass by, but I made the split second decision to just walk over to him, get his attention and then tell him what I was up to. Right when I stopped him and he took off his head phones I could tell he was a nice guy. I told him what was up and he happily agreed to participate. Here is what Ramah had to say.

3 Buddies in the City

Yesterday my sons and I caught the train from our neighbourhood to one of the neighbouring areas to mix up our urban routine. Naturally I had my camera with me and shot a few photos through out the afternoon. Our original idea was to check out some candy stores I knew of in the area, however they were both close. In replacement of candy we got rice crispy squares, pumpkin loaf and coffee (only I had the coffee haha). We hang out at a table on the street, enjoyed our snacks and took in the city as it should be taken, with good company and good coffee! ;).
