The Path To Glory!

As you walk up to this path/bridge that takes you down to this amazing dock in Portland, you begin to see the amazing view and unique texture of your soundings. The ruff dock, the slick path if it’s been raining, the glassy or raindrop filled river and of course the amazing skyline view. It’s all here in this one spot for you to take in for as long as your heart desires. It’s a wonderful place and when you set foot on that dock for the first time, it is nothing short of glorious.

Hey Guy!

Here is another Fujifilm X-T2 straight out of camera shot (no edits). This guy was parked here and taking pictures looking the other direction. I wanted to get a picture with his face in it, so I yelled “Hey Guy!” haha. Judging by the direction of his eyes he must have thought it was someone else yelling at him. 🤣

Fujifilm JPEG in Portland

I have been hearing about how amazing the Fujifilm jpegs are for sometime now. I decided it might be time to give Fuji a closer look and see if the photos lived up to the hype. I had been planning on heading back down to Portland to hang out for a few days and I thought why not take a Fujifilm X-T2 with me to see how it handles. First off, the camera was a joy to use and the 16-55mm f/2.8 and 56mm f/1.2 I was using were amazing! Both lenses were super sharp and created and pleasing bokeh. Anyhow, I am not doing a full review on any of the gear, but I will be posting some pictures over the next couple weeks that I took with the Fuji setup. I will only be posting straight out of camera jpegs, because the cameras filters and in camera edit style settings is what has really attracted me to the camera itself. So here’s the first one of many to come. I don’t think this is the best shot I got with the camera, but it’s one I like :).

Just Weeks before with Amy & Dwight

I went kicking around Princes Island Park with Amy & Dwight the other day to shoot some engagement photos. Funny thing about this photo session is it was only a few weeks away from the actual wedding! Not exactly typical, but who cares ;). We really lucked out with the weather because the days leading up to the shoot were really ugly out and then on the day the sun was shinning and it was sweater weather. Good weather, good people and a good location is a recipe for fun and that’s what happened.

I also shot a bit of video along the way too and have added it here if your into that sort of thing.

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 ;).

City School

exif data rob moses canon 6d 70-200mm f4 isI love old schools like the one in this picture. It is a perfect example of what comes to my mind when I think of a big old elementary school. The location of this school is just wonderful. Having the Portland skyline as a backdrop to this beautiful old building makes for good picture.

If anyone is interested, this school was originally called “Failing Elementary School”. The school named after former Portland Mayor Josiah Failing. The building is currently occupied by the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM).

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 :).

People in Beaulieu Gardens

Sony A7R 70-200mm exif data Rob Moses Photography

The weather has been getting pretty nice around Calgary these days and the people are getting out there and enjoying it! When the people come out, so do I ;). Gotta get them street shots while the street shootings hot!

For these shots I just grabbed nice little seat for my self on the grass, framed up my shot and waited for the people to walk by. A friend of mine lent me his Sony A7R mirrorless camera, so I was using that a long with a Sony 70-200mm f4 G OSS. It’s a pretty slick little set up that produces great results.

From the East Village

Camera: Canon 6D & 28mm f/1.8 ~ Settings: f/20 – 20 seconds – ISO 100

I shot this on Sunday night right before I shot the photo in my last post. This little part of the East Village in Calgary is cool. Once some of these buildings are done and some stores and coffee shops start opening it’s going to be awesome. It’s still nice to look at even now though :).

Calgary North & The Rockies

I shot this photo a couple of days ago when I was out getting a skyline shot. I had been searching for a vantage point from the east side of town looking west and found a 6 or 7 story high parking garage. My first attempt at getting in the garage was unsuccessful, as the stairwell at the front entry was locked. I kept looking around and saw a walk way between the garage and the building it was attached too, so I checked it out. The walk way led me to a side entry to the garage and from there I found another stairwell at the back corner, thankfully this one was open!

Once I got to the top of the garage I set up and quickly started shooting photos. I figured at any time I could get kicked out of there, since people from their offices could see me. At first I was just shooting the downtown skyline, then I noticed the sun was shinning on the mountains in the NW direction. Just then I started to feel a few rain drops! I quickly ran over to the other end of the garage to get the right vantage point and shot a few frame before it started pouring. Got this one just in the nick of time! 🙂

Spring in Canmore, Canada

Last weekend I was out in Canmore, Alberta Canada to escape the city for a little bit. On Sunday morning I decided to go for a little “spring” walk and take a look around the town to see if I could get any good pictures. Although it looks more like winter in this picture, it was still a nice morning for a walk and I think these guys would agree :).

Morning Moon

I took this picture about a week ago in Castlegar British Columbia. I was out for a little morning walk and randomly stopped to take this picture. It was only until I started to do a little edit on the photo till I noticed a little morning moon in the photo :). It’s not easy to spot in this small picture, but in the large version it’s easy to see.
