Portland Vlogs

I took a trip down to Portland last weekend and shot a little video of my trip. I met up with an old friend of mine from Vancouver and my brother in-law. If I was on my own I probably would have daily vlogged the trip, but when your with friends you can’t just be filming the whole time or you won’t have time to visit haha.

A Downtown View

I shot this one from Tom Campbell Park by my house in Calgary. I don’t live to far from this place and on my way home one night last summer I decided to stop by and shoot a photo with my 300mm. Earlier in the night I was out with a friend of mine shooting some photos a lot farther away from the city, I thought I might stop off here and see what kind of results I got a little closer in. Not a bad shot, but then again it’s pretty easy to get a decent shot from Tom Campell Park.

TriMet to the Bridge

rob-moses-exif-data-settings-canon-6d-50mm-1-4I had just walked across this bridge in Portland and saw the train coming up. One quick shot later and I had this picture. If I had a little more time to think I probably would have shot this with a slower shutter speed to show some movement in the train. I guess I’ll have to wait till next time to have another go at it.

The 2nd photo is just shot I took of myself while I was taking pictures off the top of this parking garage. 🙂

Pieces to the Puzzle

This picture is kind of cool because of all the action going on. At first glance you might not even notice, but there really is a lot happening. First off and most importantly, the couple walking across the bridge. Then of course the people on the boat and the other people about to launch their boat. Another important piece to this photo is the train going by in the background. I waited quite a while to get that train going by and to have a good shot of some people on the bridge before shooting the photo. All these little things might not be much interest to most people, but to me they all come together to make this picture something I can appreciate.

TriMet

exif data rob moses canon 6d 17-40mmThe public transit in Portland, Oregon is great! I’m the type who prefers the train over driving, so the public transportation system in Portland is greatly appreciated by myself and other like minded people. Pictured here is TriMet train #235 making its way around the city.

Street Shot

exif data rob moses canon 6d 50mmJust quick street shot I took while walking around Portland, Oregon. Portland is a great place for street photography because there are a lot of people around wherever you go. The people are also cool looking for the most part, so that is always a plus too :).

Commuting Calgary – Canon FD

Exif data Sony a7ii & Canon FD 80-200mm f4 SSC rob moses

I shot this photo at f/16.

I have been on a bit of vintage lens kick lately. I recently got my hands on a Canon FD 80-200mm f4 SSC. This is the first test shot I took with the lens on my Sony a7ii. The combination of these old Canon lenses on the a7ii is awesome and super fun to use. This particular lens can be found for pretty cheap (around $100. US dollars). For anyone with an a7 body and no 70-200, it’s kind of a no brainer to pick one of these up. The image quality is good and it is a joy to use. It’s also go this cool built in lens hood! Love the build quality of these classic lenses.

Not Waiting For A Train

Yesterday evening I was out running an errand and naturally, I had my camera with me. So before I headed home I decided to drop in on a subway station and see if I could get a picture. This lady was waiting for the train on the closest side to the escalator I came down. I waited for a train to pull in on the other side and snapped the first photo. I was happy with that picture, but I saw the next train was coming 1 minute away, so I though why not wait for that one and get one more picture. I’m glad I did, because I rather like both shots. Oh, and if you’re wondering about the title, I wasn’t taking the train, I just went down there to shoot some photos :).

The Train Over 10th

I was looking for a picture in my files this weekend and came across this picture. I totally forgot I even took it and can’t believe I didn’t rush to share it straight away, because I rather like this shot. It’s a nice view down 10th Street and it’s kind of cool with the train going by over top of the street. Views like this always make me love Calgary.

Fall Was Nice

I’d say we had a pretty decent fall here in Calgary this year. The two prior falls I experienced in Calgary were a lot shorter and winter blasted in from out of no where. This year it kind of eased its way into winter and I was able to adapt and mentally prepare for the Eskimo lifestyle I was about to endure. I took this picture a week or so ago, it has since snowed and this time it’s not melting away.

3 Buddies in the City

Yesterday my sons and I caught the train from our neighbourhood to one of the neighbouring areas to mix up our urban routine. Naturally I had my camera with me and shot a few photos through out the afternoon. Our original idea was to check out some candy stores I knew of in the area, however they were both close. In replacement of candy we got rice crispy squares, pumpkin loaf and coffee (only I had the coffee haha). We hang out at a table on the street, enjoyed our snacks and took in the city as it should be taken, with good company and good coffee! ;).

Sunset Over Calgary

I shot this on Tuesday evening off an overpass near my house. The previous day I was driving over said overpass at the exact same time I took this picture. As I crossed the overpass I saw right away what a great shot it could be, so I noted the time and came back the next day. The photo is not exactly how I had pictured it in my mind, but it’s pretty close :).

*Note: If you ever desire to see any of my pictures in a little larger size, I post most of them on my Twitter account in a larger size :). Also, sometimes I just can’t wait to get a picture out there and it might hit Twitter a day a head of here haha. Now I’m not saying go there instead of here, because this is where all the good stuff is haha ;). Just go there if you want to view a shot a little bigger.

Train Into The City

I shot this photo last night from SAIT (a local college). I got there a bit early and tried a few shots while it was lighter out, but I knew waiting till the sun when down more would give a much better effect. Once the sun went down more I waited for a train to go by so I could get the lights streaks in the shot. I had my camera on a 2 second timer, but timing for the train was still rather easy because just before the train comes into frame there is a cross walk with bells that ring. Anyhow, it was a nice night and I’m happy with the picture :).
