Yeah! It's me working

Hi, My name is David Lafuente Gómez (Aka DaveKustomShots). Thanks to spend your time on knowing something more about me. Born in 1977, I’m from Mataró, a city near Barcelona in Spain.

I started shooting since I was a child when my parents bought me a Kodak Instamatic 25. After that camera I use my father old camera a Taron Auto-EL. And finally the last inheritance was the Nikkormat EL. On the digital era I started with a Nikon Coolpix 4300. On a summer holidays I borrowed the Nikon D40 to my brother and finally I bought my Nikon D90 and it was with me for nearly 10 years. Now I’m using a Nikon D750 to shoot.

Dave Kustom Shots at night

In 2016 I discovered that people takes amazing pictures at night and I started playing.

Taking pictures at night it is a great adventure; first of all because at night all you can see is limitated and your reference points on a sunny day disapear. Second because you must live together with animals while you are arriving at your destination or while you are in there; animals that during the day are invisibles: roe deer, rabbits, wild pigs, butterflies, mosquitoes… And third, while you are in the dark, concentrated in iluminate your subject, you always can look up and see the sky plenty of stars and lay over the land an let the peace come to your mind and your body. Sometimes you can see the moonrise, sometimes the moonset and sometimes including the sunrise.

But the calm of a dark night with the crickets singing, the night butterflies flying, the stars over your head, your flashlight in your hands, your camera ready… It’s an amazing sensation that alter my biorithms and it is impossible to felt sleep when I arrive home
