I AM ISAAC

Wearefatmoose
Where are you from? 
I was born in New Rochelle, NY but I’ve lived in CT for most of my life.
Where do you live now ?
ISAAC5
What is your favorite place to take picture ?
I haven’t actually found a favorite spot yet but I enjoy urban places as well as places where there is limited human interaction.

What is your tips to take picture? And which camera brand do you use ? 
I use Nikon but I’m thinking about switching to Canon.
My number one tip is to always make sure you’ve got what you need before you venture out, there’s nothing worse than going to shoot and not having something silly like a large enough memory card.
Any favorite places to go shopping (online and real shop) ? 
Favorite to shop online is probably Amazon and in real store is probably Best Buy.
When did your passion for adventure start?
It started once I started running Cross Country for my High School. We would run to so many places around the town and I’d get to see lots of places where nobody would normally see driving or riding in a car.
Do you have a motto that you apply to your life?
“It is what it is” really what it keeps me grounded. There are some things in the universe that you can’t control. Sometimes you’ve just gotta let it go and keep pushing on

What are your favorite artists (music, live performances…) ? 
I listen to a lot of different types of music to be honest but my favorite artist out of them all is Harley Streten aka Flume. He’s a great live performer and producer musician. My second favorite artist is Ta-Ku because of how the vibe of his style of music is real nice and chilled out. When I want something to amp up to I’ll listen to someone like Drake, Childish Gambino or even Madvillain.
Where do you usually like to go on adventure?
I like to stick to areas on the more rural side of town but sometimes I’ll venture to the urban side a little.
ISAAC1
Which sport do you like ? 
I’m a huge Football fan but my favorite sport of all time is Track & Field mainly because I participate in the sport and I love to run.
What are your biggest accomplishments as an adventurer? 
My biggest accomplishment is going out in the last blizzard that we had and taking the bridge shot that you featured on your Instagram and Facebook Pages.
What do you feel about Fat Moose brand ? 
I really like your clothing. Especially your coats and jackets I’m actually dying to get my hands on one of those.

Bring It In Brooklyn by Canon

Fat Moose crossed the Brooklyn Bridge to go bowling with Canon last week:

The Japanese multinational company of cameras, Canon, organized a chill afternoon bowling session centered around five hit-Instagramers:

Amy Stone, Stefan Karlstrom, Natalie Amrossi, Rob Ceos and Scott Borrero.

So we decided to put on our bowling shoes and learn some photography tips from the pros.

Upon arrival we were given cameras and invited to talk to professional photographers and Canon assistants. We explored the local, venturing from Amy Stone’s photo booth to Stefan Karlstrom’s food photography table. First tip: eating the food DOES help you to understand how to get the right angle for your photograph’s composition.

But let’s get a bit more serious and technical: here are our top tips from Brooklyn.

NATURE SHOTS:

  • To shoot an outdoor portrait your focal length should be at 70mm or higher, never less than 50 mm, if not your subject will be distorted
  • If your photos are coming out too dark, try increasing your ISO
  • On cloudy days, it is essential to think about your wardrobe; use your white balance to control any unwanted color cast in your image
  • To add style to a good photo with bad lighting don’t hesitate to switch to black and white mode or any other filter that suites your aesthetic

CITY PICTURES:

  • Whether you are trying to take a street portrait of a stranger or friend, try making direct eye contact first, this adds a sense of human connection and it really comes through in a photo
  • The city is your playground; try to capture any contrast and truly explore even the strangest of places.
  • Try using aperture priority (Av) mode and set the F-stop to the lowest possible number for a shallow deph-of-field. This allows your subject to remain the focus of your image, especially when there is a busy background.
  • Fisheye lenses make your audience feel like they’re part of the action and creates an interesting aesthetic.
  • Try shooting in the evening and during twilight to get more dramatic pictures

Cameras Used:

Canon EOS rebel t6i: you can easily take professional level quality photographs. This camera is the best for the inner city traveller and jungle explorer as well! And a definite perk is the wifi on the camera, which makes for easy uploading.

Canon G7x: small and easy to carry around, we love this baby for its awesome creative mode that allows you to take several pictures at the same time with different settings and focus.

Thank you Canon for this amazing event and for all the tips. Best bowling game ever!
