Pet Portraits

I recently got the chance to work with Tugg and her owner, Rachel on a shoot in Marana. The subject was a small, friendly dog and had quite a bit of energy. I found that when your subject has a tendency to move, you need to be able to as well. That called for a one light set-up, and a light weight one at that. Using a YN-560 III on a small light stand and a portable soft box by Impact, I was able to carry my Nikon D610 with a 70-200 lens all over. I will say that having a smaller flash on a stand worked well. I captured these images after clicking the shutter quite a few times.

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!
