A business trip to San Francisco got me to a city with some great photographic possibilities. The problem was, I was in an office most of the time on a work trip. I did happened to rent a bike for a few days, and on the last day, made my way to the Golden Gate Bridge and a few other places. I took along my trusty Olympus OMD-EM5 mark 2. Its a micro 4/3s camera that I have been using more and more. As the say, the best camera is the one you have with you. Olympus makes it easy with the OMD-EM5.
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!
