A few weeks ago, my wife and I had the opportunity to test out a new inflatable raft at Canyon Lake. I used a GoPro Hero 2 camera to film the experience.  We had quite a view from the center of the water. The GoPro, known more for extreme video, also has a camera function. I took a few photos of the water's edge and this photograph in particular, with a little help from the Photoshop plug-in known as 'Topaz Adjust', got quite a few positive comments. Enjoy!

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!
