Edmonton Night

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-70-200mm-f4-isI was up in Edmonton this past weekend visiting some family. I hung out and chatted the evening away, but once it got into the night around 8:30, I had to burn rubber and hit the streets! I love Edmonton and I love some the beautiful views the city has to offer. Here is one of my favourite views of the city, taken from Saskatchewan Drive.

Big City Sky

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-70-200mm-f2-8-isIf your a photographer in Calgary and you didn’t make it out to shoot last night, you missed out! The sky was amazing at dusk and my good friend Nathan Somes and I were out there taking it all in. The idea to shoot was a bit of a last minute thing and we were racing out the door to make it before the sky went black on us. Clearly we made it, and just in the nick of time!

After we shot this location we went to shoot a couple more and we saw these people shooting off some little fireworks. I just happen to have my 2X extender on at the time and was able to grab a quick shot of that too! It was a good night to be out shooting photos. 🙂

No Option to Zoom

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-300mm-f2-8I love taking pictures of the city at night. When I went to shoot photos on this night I took only one lens, my Canon 300mm f/2.8. Sometimes I’ll leave the house with only one lens, because I find it forces me into photos I might not otherwise shoot. This shot is pretty tight in and I probably would have zoomed out a bit if I had the option. After looking at the pictures on my computer, I am glad the option to zoom out was unavailable, because I like the picture as it is.

Winter has hit a little early in Calgary this year! I decided to head out and take a look around the city last night and see how it looked. It was pretty foggy out and I think the fog really added something nice to the picture. It looks quiet to me, and it was. I guess everyone was inside trying to stay warm. 😉

Shiny & New

exif-data-rob-moses-sony-a850-minolta-100mm-f2-8-macroWe got a shiny new building (Brookfield Place) going up in Calgary and it’s almost done! The building is super bright right now compared to all the others. I am sure it won’t stay THAT bright, but I hope it still keeps some of that sparkly shine to it. 🙂

Well it’s that time of year again that all the hockey fans have been waiting for! The NHL preseason has started the real games are just around the corner. I am sure there are many fun nights in the near future for me in this building.

For the locals, I’m still peeved that Hartley‘s gone, but what are ya gonna do? Hope the Flames have a good year with the new guy.

Secluded Peace

exif-data-rob-moses-photography-canon-5d-mark-iii-300mm-f2-8-lTaking pictures of a city a night has a special kind of magic to it. I find this especially true when you are in a dark and secluded place like I was for this shot. My location was completely quiet and I was very much alone. Peaceful, relaxing and exciting all at the same time. I love it. 🙂

I was downtown yesterday shooting some photos for a client. While I was down there I thought I’d grab a picture for you all too ;). The gigantic head on the right is actually quite big and it is lit up a night. The sun and sun reflection on the blue building make a fun addition to the photo.

Calgary Shine

rob moses exif data sony a7ii 70-200mm OSS f4 GWe got some shiny buildings over here in Calgary. I like taking pictures from this side of town because when the sun sets you get this beautiful light hitting the buildings. I also timed out this shot so I would have lights from the cars and the train going by at the same time. I think the lights add a lot to the picture. The nice splash of colorful action at the bottom really rounds out the frame.

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.

Portland from a Bridge

rob moses exif data canon 6d 50mmThis is the view of Portland from the Steel Bridge. I was walking across the bridge on the other side and immediately knew I was on the wrong side. I don’t recommend doing this, but I had wait for a break in the traffic to run across the bridge! It wasn’t all that busy, so it wasn’t a big deal. I know there are many better locations for a Portland skyline shot, but this view is nice to look at too :).

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.

A Friends Camera

rob moses exif data canon 6d 70-200mm f4 isI was out shooting the skyline with a friend of mine over the weekend when this idea popped into my head. At first I shot this photo at f4 and slowly made my way to f14. At f4 you couldn’t tell what was in front of the camera, but here in this shot I think it’s a little more clear :).
