Enjoy The Sunset

exif-data-canon-5d-classic-ef-85mm-1-8I was out one day for a walk the park and was enjoying the sunset. I walked up on this couple who were taking it all in with a front row seat. That feather in the guys cap caught my eye and I thought putting the sun right between them would be perfect. I like how the sun looks in the picture and I love how it looked in person.

Summer Cycle

exif data rob moses canon 6D 28mm 1.8Calgary has some nice biking paths around the city. There are some nice views and great places to stop along the way. I personally wouldn’t be caught cruising around on the paths right now as it is currently 16°F out and I’m sure I’d freeze to death and if that didn’t kill me I’d surely hit some ice and crash into something that would take me out haha. However, when summer hits, these paths are wonderful! ;).

Floating Around in the Fog

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L ii at 35mm ~ Settings: f/2.8 – 1/400th – ISO 2500

It has been rather foggy around Calgary these days. Yesterday I decided to take a picture of myself on the path in front of my house. My original idea was to shoot a photo of me just standing in the path with my camera and I did that. When reviewing the photos on the cameras LCD I thought the photo could use a little extra zip, and the idea to jump popped into my head. I think the levitating look adds a real fun element to the shot.

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L ii at 35mm ~ Settings: f/4.5 – 1/125th – ISO 2000

I used a Canon RC-1 remote on a 2 second timer to trigger my camera which was on a tripod behind me. I shot about a dozen of these, because I had to make sure I jumped right at the perfect time to be in the air when the shutter clicked. I also didn’t want my clothes to look like they were flapping around either. At first I was wearing a hoody on while doing this, but it just didn’t look right. It was only after the fact that I noticed my shirt matched my lens haha. Just good luck there.

As for the second shot, since I was clearly taking up the whole path way I had the opportunity to say hello to a few people from the neighbourhood. I snapped a quick shot of this friendly guy and his dog as they walked by. Nothing like getting in people’s way to spark up a little dialog. 😉

Side Note: If anyone is wondering, in the picture I’m holding a Canon 6D & 70-200mm f/2.8 IS in my hand.

When I shot this photo I had posted my self up at the turning point of this path. This way I could see who was coming up the stairs and decide if I wanted to take their picture or not. I saw thing guy walking up and waited for him to look directly at me before I took the picture. It’s fun to get the people looking right at you from time to time when shooting in the street :).

The woman in the second picture actually stopped and talked to me for a moment and I was happy to meet her and her little Westie! Those little doggies just happen to be my favourite kind.

A Bike Ride to the Mayor

I was out on a bike ride along the Bow River here in Calgary taking some pictures this morning. I stopped at the Centre street bridge and shot a few photos and while I was at it I took some with my iPhone. For this shot I had a fisheye attachment called the Ollo Clip on my phone. The quality of the fisheye isn’t out of this world haha, but it’s a fun little accessory.

While I was cruising on my bike I stopped off for a drink of water at a public fountain on Princes Island. When I looked up I saw the Mayor of Calgary Naheed Nenshi walking towards me! He was with a  few people he looked to be showing around, so I said a quick hello and snapped a quick picture with my phone :).  Fun times going down in Calgary this weekend!

Calgary By The River

The river that runs through Calgary is rather low now and there was a massive area for me to walk out on to get this picture. It was just me and a couple Canadian Geese hanging out shooting photos :). I actually got a picture with those guys in it, but I’ll post that one another day ;).

A Beautiful Path

I have been going through some old pictures of mine on my external hard drive and I came across these 3 photos I shot for a HDR that I never made. I shot this right after I had finished shooting a wedding on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC. You know you really love photography when you get done shooting a wedding from start to finish and still want to go out shooting more photos! haha.

Dogs Like To Run Too!

I was driving home the other day a long this street that has a great view of the city. While I was driving I noticed this girl running with her dog. The dog caught my eye because he looked so happy to be out running. I kept driving and thought it might make a good picture if I could get them both in the frame, so I decided to pull over and see if I could get the shot. Just as I got my camera ready they came running by and I snapped this photo.

Under A Bridge

With a scene like this I think most people would think to shoot this photo wide and I understand why, but I thought shooting it with a longer focal length might look good too. I’m happy with how the picture turned out, maybe next time I’ll see what I get with a wide-angle.

City Park View

I shot this picture from my favourite park in the city. It’s called Princes Island Park and it is right downtown in Calgary (well uptown really). In the winter time this pond is frozen and lit up for ice skating. I’ll go down there this winter and get some pictures of people skating. The thing I love about this park is you can walk around by the water and have a nice views of the city through the trees. It kind of has a Central Park(in NYC) feel, but miniature size on every level haha. In any case, I love this park an there are a lot of good pictures to be had. I’ll get down there this weekend and take some more pictures before all the leaves fall off the trees.
