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 ;).

Montana Signs

I love old signs like this! I think the “Sports Club” sign would be particularly awesome at night. Since I was only passing through this town (Shelby, MT) I didn’t have the opportunity to get a night shot of the sign. Even in the day light this sign still has a certain charm to it. Maybe next time I’m around I’ll plan to be passing through at night. 🙂

Selfie with a Wild Elk!

exif data rob moses a7ii 24-70mmWhile I was in Banff last weekend I saw this massive wild elk just walking down the street! I quickly pulled over, jumped out of my car and ran over with my camera. A small crown quickly gathered, everyone with their cameras and phones out. These girls were right beside me and started taking selfies, so I grabbed a couple pictures of them haha. I showed them the picture after and they laughed. I’m not sure how their selfies turned out, but this one was a keeper!

4th Street Lights

Sony a7ii & Canon FD 20mm 2.8 SSC

The lights that line 4th Street in Calgary are wonderful at night. I wish all the streets looked like this. For this shot I had waited till some cars were waiting for the light to change, that way the street wouldn’t just be streaks of light. When shooting long exposures on the street it’s hard to get a proper feel for how alive the scene is. The lack of people in the shots is probably the biggest contributing culprit in that regard. If you’re not familiar with shooting long exposures, a person could walk right by you and they wouldn’t show up in the photo (unless a flash hit them). Anyhow, I thought the cars in the shot would help. Cars or no cars, it’s all about them lights though!

Waiting for the Times

This is a really random shot I snapped while walking down the street in Port Townsend, Washington with my son last year. He wasn’t actually waiting for anything, just climbing around like kids do :).

Timeless Fun

6d exif data rob moses

I’m sure most of us have done this before as a child and some of us as adults. Not exactly sure why dragging a stick a long a fence is so fun for a child, but it definitely falls into the timeless category in my book. This picture is of my son Cameron when we were walking to the park one day. 🙂

Greener Times

Camera: Canon 6D & 24-105L @ 105mm ~ Settings: f/18 – 1/250th – ISO 640

A little through back to greener times in my neighbourhood. I can’t wait for it to look like this again. I’m getting tired of washing my car every 3 days and ruining perfectly good shoes to slush and snow. Here’s to an early spring! I hope ;).

Colourful Front Street

Camera: Canon 6D & 17-40L @ 17mm ~ Settings: f/20 – 30 seconds – ISO 100

This is a look down Front Street in beautiful Penticton, BC Canada. Walking down this street gives a feeling of walking through a post card, everything is almost perfect. Brick buildings in odd shapes always do it for me and this particular Sassy corner did not disappoint.

Exploring Port Townsend

One night while I was in Port Townsend WA this summer, I went out to get some night shots. This was one of the first pictures I took because the window you look through in this picture is my hotel’s lobby. I was staying at the Palace Hotel and the street you’re looking down here is Tyler Street I believe. Anyhow, I thought the sign in the shot might make for a good picture, since it says Port Townsend and all :).

Walking with Batman

We decided to take a walk down to the corner store for some ice cream yesterday and I snapped this picture of my son. Right after I took this picture he opened this gate and started walking to the door of the house! haha. I explained to him people probably wouldn’t like that and we went on our way :).

A Walk in Chinatown

I was in Chinatown the other day here in Calgary and I took a few street shots. I decided to shoot 35mm just to mix things up a little and force my self to get a little closer to my subjects. I definitely prefer 50 over 30, but it’s fun to get a little closer every now and then.
