Bike Path View

I went out for a little evening bike ride the other night. I made a quick stop and shot this photo of the nice view of the city I was enjoying while riding by. There are definitely better views from other parts of the path, but this is one bit that probably doesn’t get shot a ton since your right in front of the buildings.

Sunny Beach

Screen Shot 2017-05-20 at 3.11.10 PM

I took this picture while I was down in Cancun Mexico last. This particular beach seemed to get a ton of sun and had some really beautiful blue water. The sand was nice, the people were cool and I loved it! I kinda wish I was there right now to be honest with you. 😎

Plans by Myself

Shot @ f/1.2

I shot this photo on Saturday night. I actually had plans to meet up with a friend of mine, but then at the last minute he informed me the plans were a no go. At first I thought to myself, well that sucks. Then I thought, hey no problem I’ll just make plans with myself! I grabbed my camera and headed out the door for some solo fun.

I took this picture at one of my favourite view points in the city on Crescent Road. I was shooting with my Fujifilm X-E1 and my manual focus Canon FD 50mm f/1.2 lens. I prefocused on the bench I was sitting on and hopped on the bench. It took a few tries as it always does in a situation like this, but it was good fun and I got this cool picture out of it. 🙂

That Sunset

Canon FD 50mm 1.2 shot @f/16

I shot this photo on Saturday night. The sunset was amazing, but there was a lot of parking lot in the middle of the picture that I didn’t like. I thought I’d hop in there and maybe make the picture a little more interesting. Not to mention giving me a change to show off my cool new Cultural Blends hoodie.😜

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 :).

Autumn Spokane View

The last time I went to Spokane in the fall I got a pretty wicked room that had this beautiful view! The deck was actually massive and I really should have got a picture of it, but I guess I forgot haha. Anyhow, if you want a good view this hotel (The Red Lion) has a lot of good rooms with nice views.

I thought might as well add a picture of myself on the the deck too ;).

Spokane is Awesome!

Enjoy The Sunset

exif-data-canon-5d-classic-ef-85mm-1-8I was out one day for a walk the park and was enjoying the sunset. I walked up on this couple who were taking it all in with a front row seat. That feather in the guys cap caught my eye and I thought putting the sun right between them would be perfect. I like how the sun looks in the picture and I love how it looked in person.

Morning Sun

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-50mm-1-4I just caught the sun peaking over this massive mountain in Banff. Whenever I think of “The Rockies”, it’s a mountain exactly like this that comes to mind. Fun to catch it with the warm sun coming into the picture.

Room With a View

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-24-70mm-f2-8-lJust taking in the view from my hotel room’s deck in Spokane, Washington. I dialled in my settings and handed my camera off to my wife to take this one for me. It really was a nice view and I was fired up about the sweater I bought the night before at the Spokane Chiefs game ;). Always a good time in Spokane, I love that place.

Enjoy The View

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-6d-24-105mm-f4-isSometimes you just gotta have a seat and enjoy the beauty around you. When you’re in Lake Louise there is no shortage of places to do just that. I think this particular spot is definitely one of the best places to take it all in.

I didn’t know this guy, but I thought it was a good look the way he was sitting by the lake. I ran up behind him and shot about 5 photos. I was shooting at 24mm, so you can image how close I was to him. After I shot the first photo, he looked back at me and I shot my second frame. Clearly he didn’t mind because he just turned his head back and kept enjoying the view. 🙂

Summer Night Selfie

exif-data-rob-moses-canon-5d-mark-iii-ef-300mm-f2-8Not a proper selfie, but I did take this picture of myself :). I had been out shooting all night and thought before I packed it in I would jump in on a shot. To get the focus right, I propped my iPhone up on the 2X Extender I had with me with the “notes” app open for the white screen (as seen in the picture bellow). Once the phone was set, I ran back to my camera and auto focused on the phone and then set the lens to manual focus. I did a couple small adjustments, set the 10 second timer and ran back to my pre determined spot which was marked by my keys. I shot this photo about 4 or 5 times and it was easily the most fun I had all night!

On The Railing

sony-a850-minolta-100mm-f2-8-macro-rob-moses-exif-dataI was out for a walk around the neighbourhood with my son Joshua yesterday evening. I wanted to shoot a photo with my Minolta 100mm lens and I figured I’d find something to shoot a long the way. When we got to the spot in the picture, my son suggested I just take a picture of him. I’m glad he made the suggestion, because I love how the photo turned out.

Adventure of a Lifetime

Yesterday I took a trip out the mountains to do a some hiking. By the time I had passed the tree line something came over me and I decided it would be fun to keep going. It was clear to me that this mountain was much steeper than any hike I had ever been on, but the challenge and exhilaration that I knew awaited me at the top was too difficult to over come. So on I went. Every time I would make a little goal for myself I would reach it and then I’d make another goal to go a little higher and then higher yet. A few minutes after I took this picture it started to rain and that was my cue to get the heck out of there.

I knew if the rocks got slippery I’d be in some serious trouble, because one good slip and certain death awaited me! The way down was a lot more scary than the way up. The rain was coming down and I knew I had to be extra careful. There was a lot of sliding involved in my decent and I got to give it up to my trusty Nike sneakers, they never let me down and stuck to the rocks when I needed them too :). Sunday for me was an adventure of a lifetime and I can’t wait to do it again!
