Around The Bridge Shooting Mobile

Here are a couple Calgary pictures I took with my Sony QX100. A funny little camera that produces good results :).

Last week I decided to dig out my Sony QX100 and snap a couple of photos with it when I was walking downtown one day. In the first shot, I was crouching on the grassy hill by the street waiting for a biker to come by, when this guy came zooming I got the shot I was after :). In the 2nd shot I was perched on this little bridge look out and just took the shot when I had a few interesting people in the shot to hold down the bottom edge of the shot.

If you’re not familiar with the Sony QX100, it attaches (or not) to your phone via wifi and uses your phone as the view finder. It then saves a 18mp shot to a micro SD and a 2mp shot to your phone for sharing (there are many other saving options). The images are pretty…

Train Into The City

This is one my favourite pictures I took of the summer. It’s one of the subway bridges going over a street with part of the Calgary Skyline in the background.

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 :).

Downtown Calgary from the East

I was driving through the inner city neighbourhood of Bridgeland the other day and noticed this nice little vantage point to shoot this photo. I didn’t have a DSLR on me, so I shot this with a mirrorless (Samsung NX100) camera I had. Just for fun, I decided to edit this picture on my iPad with the Snapseed app. The neighbourhood directly at the bottom of this hill is Bridgeland and to the right of the picture up another hill is a neighbourhood called Renfrew that I am hopping to buy a house in later this year 🙂

Tomorrow I will be meeting up with an old friend of mine that I haven’t seen in like 10 years that lives in Calgary now. I will be interviewing her for this blog, so check back tomorrow night for that 🙂

* Update: Due to the flooding in Calgary I was unable to meet up with my friend. We are rescheduling and I will have her on here at a later date.

A Reflection of Calgary

Calgary Skyline East Village 2013 facebook - Rob Moses Photography
Camera: 5Diii & 50mm 1.8 MK1 – Settings: 25 seconds (tripod) // f22 // ISO 400

Last weekend I went for a little walk through the East Village and into Inglewood along the the riverside. On my way back downtown I walked by this little pond and immediately pictured this photo in my mind. At the time there was a bit of wind and the water wasn’t quite still, but I imagined with the right weather and time of night a good picture was to be had. I went back a few days later when there wasn’t a lot of wind.

When I showed up to shoot the photo the pond was rather still and I was excited. As I made my way down the embankment to get the right spot for the reflection I wanted I heard some splashing. I stopped setting up and watched the pond for a moment to see what was going on. To my surprise more splashing started to occur and then I saw something swimming around, it was a beaver! Although I found this little beaver to be quite amusing and fun to see, now was not the time. The beaver was creating a lot of unwanted ripples in the water. Also the night was falling fast and my window of opportunity was slipping away for the sky I wanted for my picture. So naturally I decided the best course of action would be to try and reason with this non-english speaking animal haha. “Hey beaver, can you please stop swimming and splashing! I only go so much time to get this shot”. Now as ridiculous as that sounds (a grown man in the dead of night talking to a beaver in a pond), it seemed to have worked. He swam around for another few minutes and finally decided to listen to reason and let me shoot my photo.

Thanks Beaver! 😉
