Great Horned Owl & Friend

exif-data-canon-t3i-70-300mm-is-do-rob-mosesThis big Great Horned Owl was hanging out in a tree in front of my house last month! He was sleeping there for a few hours and after a while this Magpie bird came over and started hanging out with it haha. Pretty cool thing to see out your bedroom window 🙂

Silver Springs Wedding: Ashley & Dustin

The leaves and grass got green just in time for this wedding. The sun also came out right when it needed too! Sure the harsh light provides its own problems for taking pictures, but the ambiance and over all feeling the emerging afternoon sun brought with it was well wroth the trade off.

This was a shorter wedding for me, as I didn’t meet up with the bride or groom before I got to the venue. I showed up a little early to grab a few shots of the set up. When Ashley arrived, I got a few shots of her and a few other people putting the finishing touches on their outfits. The ceremony started shortly after their arrival and the show was on. The formal shots were the fastest I have ever done (by a long shot). I’d say we had about 15 minutes to get things done! LOL, Which is crazy! After the words fastest photo shoot, we went back in for some dancing and partying. This wedding was peddle to the metal from the start and it was a good one! 🙂

Apartment with a View

exif data canon t3i 300mm f:2.8 2X rob mosesI shot this photo on Saturday night. At first I thought I was going to shoot at a locationmuch farther from the city, but by the time my friend who was going me showed up at my house we didn’t have enough time to get any farther out of the town. Since I only brought this one set up with me, I was forced to shoot a lot tighter than I was expecting. Situations like this are sometimes a downer, but being forced to shoot something you might otherwise not shoot is always a good thing to me.

Doggie from a Walk

rob moses exif data canon t2i tamron 17-50mmOn Sunday I went to this cool Instagram meet up put on by @YYCinstameets. Everyone met up by the store down the street from my house and then we all went on a photo walk around my neighbourhood. It was pretty cool! This cute little doggy came along for the trip and I snapped this shot of him at the end of the walk.

Since this was an Instagram thing I figured I’d just share my Instagram picture from the day rather than a bunch of pictures here :). If your on Instagram, give me a follow and I’ll follow you back!

Canon vs Sony 70-200mm

I have been shooting a decent amount with my Sony a7R these days and I have run into some auto focus speed issues along the way. I have found that Sony’s hit rate of moving subjects is noticeably lower than what I have been used to with my Canon gear. This issue rang especially true while I was shooting some soccer this summer with the Sony E-mount 70-200mm f4 G OSS. Since I have a Canon EF 70-200mm f4 IS I thought it might be interesting to do a little real world test of these to lenses head to head. Even thought I had an idea of how the test would go from my past experiences with both lenses, I was surprised at end result of this one.

For this video I employed my two children to help me out. My 6 year old son Joshua was my 2nd camera man and my 4 year old son Cameron was the test subject :). Oh and by the way, if you have a youtube account please subscribe to my channel. I am going to try and do a lot more videos than I have been doing. YouTube.com/user/RobMoses 👍

Twin Sheds

Canon EOS Rebel T3i & EF 50mm f:1.8 mark i 1 original exif data

I was driving in the country one day when I zipped by these random sheds in this field. I kept on driving a little ways when I decided it might make a good picture. A quick stop and U-turn later I was walking through these strange bushes trying not get my shoes dirty haha. The sheds might not be identical twins, but they are close enough ;).

The Host

A couple of weeks ago I went to a BBQ at a friends place down the street. This young lady was our gracious host :). I didn’t take too many pictures, because I figured I’d better talk to people instead of being “camera guy” the whole time haha.

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.

A Friendly Walk

I shot this photo when I was out at a horse show here in Calgary not to long ago. This shot was rather random as I was just walking by and noticed this girl walking with her horse and snapped a quick one :).

Horse Jumping at Spruce Meadows

On Saturday afternoon a friend of mine and I went to check out the horse jumping show at Spruce Meadows here in Calgary. The show was being televised live on CBC television. We got there a bit late and were only around to see a small number of riders, but it was a really fun time. I’ll be heading to the next show for sure :). The big winner for the day was man by the name of Jaime Azcarraga and that was the only name I caught haha.

Big & Small

I was kicking around a park in my neighbourhood today with my little buddies and Cammy here decided he needed to take a little walk down these stairs. Some how I like pictures with big staircases in them so I quickly snapped a couple shots :).  I couldn’t decide what I liked better, the picture of Cammy with his head down or looking at the camera, so I decided to post both. The two pictures also have quite a different feel because in the 2nd photo the frame is completely filled with stairs, which I like.

Olympic Flame

When Canada wins a gold medal in the Olympics, Calgary lights up its Olympic flame for a short period (an hour or so I believe). The day before I shot these I saw the flame on from my bedroom window and thought I’d go out and shoot some photos that night. However after making plans to go with a friend he later informed me the flame was out and filled me in the details. So when I got home yesterday evening I saw that it was on again! I wasn’t going to miss it this time. As soon as that sun started going down I was out the door. It was FREEZING OUT, but it’s not often the opportunity arises to get a shot with the Calgary Tower lit up like it was 1988 (the year the Olympics were held here), so I’m happy I went.
