Pioneer Courthouse Square

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-17-40mmJust a little more of Portland here. This spot is defiantly one of my favourite places in Portland. If I grew up here I’m sure I would have ended up hold’n it down at this place a lot. There are so many places to sit, the trains go by here in every direction, there is a Starbucks and there are beautiful buildings surrounding it. These are all things that make for a wicked meet up spot in my mind. It kind of reminds me (in that way) of the Art Gallery in Vancouver, BC. Always people hanging out and events from time to time. I’m sure I’ll be back here sooner than later!

Portland’s Red Baron

rob moses exif data canon 6d 50mm 1.4I saw this kid burning around Portland on his (non-hovering) hoverboard. He looked like he was having quite the time! While he was waiting for the light to change he just kept spinning and moving back and forth. He was doing all of this while downing what looked to be a tasty Starbucks drink haha. Good times I’m sure. 🙂

Lensbaby Sweet 35

Camera: Canon 5D mark iii & 16-35L ii @ 35mm ~ Settings: f/5.6 – 1/5 – ISO 400

Canon 5D mark iii & Lensbaby Sweet 35

This is one crazy lens! I had been aware of Lensbaby for a long time now, but I never had the opportunity to use one. Then one day last week, I walked into a random thrift store and I saw this lens sitting in a glass case. I ask to check it out to see if the lens was in good working order. I put the Lensbaby on my 5D mark iii and it worked like a dream. The price tag said $75, but since it was thrift store I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask if they could cut me a little slack on the price, lucky for me they were cool with that and I got the lens for a measly $50! (retail price $380 US dollars). Score one for the R-O-B! haha ;).

These are just a couple of test shots I have taken with the lens so far. The lens is full manual focus and it kind of spins around on a little ball head similar to a tripod head. The bokeh is pretty wicked on it, but getting your focus on point can be a challenge (just as with any manual focus lens). I’ll let this lens bounce around in my bag for the next few months and see if I can get any cool pictures with it. We’ll see if Lensbaby can earn a permanent spot in my collection.

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.

Self Portrait Time

I shot this self portrait a few weeks ago for a project I was working that didn’t amount too much. Since I took the picture I thought I’d share it here :).

Let’s Get Personal

Calgary famous Starbucks coffee cup mug ipad keyboard bokeh dof shallow city skyline saddledome - Rob Moses Photography - Canadian American PhotographerCamera: Samsung NX100 with Canon FD 50mm 1.4 – Setting: 1/800th // f1.4 // ISO 100

I suppose this will be a rather personal post, as there is really no other reason I could think to post this picture haha. This is the coffee cup I start almost all of my mornings with. It’s a Calgary Starbucks cup! I LOVE Starbucks and am also a long time fan of their coffee cups. I lean towards this one most often because it’s a Calgary cup and that’s where I live right now :). Behind the cup is my iPad 3. I spend a lot of time using that for WordPress, email, Facebook, reading magazines and general surfing if I don’t feel like sitting at my computer. I guess that’s all for now, thanks for stopping by.

Wedding Days – Marae & Travis

It’s been a while since I shot a wedding! In fact this is the first wedding I ever shot in Calgary. I just happen to work with Marae at the the real estate company I shoot photos and videos for and ended up shooting her wedding 🙂

I started the day out at the Marae’s mom’s house and everyone was having fun getting ready. I shot some candids and shot some of the details (shoes, dress & such). Once the dress was on, we were on our way! The church they got married in was huge! The lighting wasn’t to bad, excepts for at the back where they came in and out, but a quick ISO adjustment sorted that part out.

Before the formals we made a quick stop at Starbucks (my fav!) for a little coffee action and a couple quick pictures. Fresh on a caffeine high we ripped it out to a ranch location that Marae and Travis picked out. The sun was blazing right when we got there so the lighting was brutal (harsh shadows), but thankfully some clouds showed up to defuse the sun from time to time. We had a lot of time a the location so the shoot was relaxed and fun 🙂 After the the shoot everyone headed to the reception and a good time was definitely had by all, my self included 😀
