So many professional photographers don't want to embrace cell phones as a picture taking tool, but when you our out on a bike and have your cell phone, sometimes you just see a photo you want to take. I was riding up Mount Lemmon the other day and captured this image with a Samsung Galaxy S5. It actually came out pretty well.
This photograph below was taken while riding (actually, I did stop to take this) along the Santa Cruz River near Marana.
Photography, Lessons Learned, and Cycling.
I have been taking pictures since I was about 6 years old. I started with a Kodak Instamatic. Just holding that Kodak was fun back then. Today, the camera badge may say "Nikon", but the fun of taking someone's photograph is still there.
Times have changed regarding photography over the past 20 years. My first business was in in Corpus Chirsti, Texas back in 1992. I went under the same name, my name, David Whitney French Photography. One of my favorite photo gigs was doing weddings. Why? Well, besides being a challenge at times, with the stress of getting the right shot in the age of film, everyone was happy! It was a happy time for the groom, bride, attendants, everyone. What more could I ask for? Hanging out, with a camera for a few hours or more with a bunch of happy people.
Oh, and I like riding my bike!
