About me:

Michael Gomez

Michael was born a native of England, second of five, mother from Ireland, father from Gibraltar. He moved to the US in 1971 after a quick exit from his home in Uganda, fleeing the brutal regime of Idi Amin Dada. Michael has lived in Nashville, TN since 1971.

In 1990, Michael took a suggestion from a friend and thought it would be fun to try acting as a career. After a visit to a photo studio for some commercial headshots, he walked out fixed on a photography career, and has not looked back since.

Michael took some photography classes, worked in a local photography store, and soon began working as an assistant to some of Nashville’s photography legends. As time went on, Michael began to develop his own client list, and has since become one of Nashville’s contemporary photography legends.

Michael shoots out of Studio Westlight, located in the heart of downtown Nashville. Studio Westlight is a 5,600 square foot studio on the ground level with 16 ft ceilings and large windows facing west.
Michael’s 20 years of photography experience includes traditional film, digital media, video, and digital retouch.

sneakyracer: Seems to me this Camera is aimed squarely at the Canon 5D3. Nikon is a Canon killer. Bam Bam! Bunch of companies introducing exiting products and Canon...quiet. Either they have the most tight lipped employees, severe NDA's / Embargos and CIA like security measures or they have NOTHING to show.

D600 and 610 are every bit as good as Canon 5D3 for the money.

wassim al malak: peace for all ,

i was waiting for the d700 replacment for a long time , but now i have some questions :
- what about the d750 low light-high ISO performance ?
- why NIKON limits the d750 for 1/4000s ?
- why not using the circular eye-piece ?
- why using the AA filter ?

thank you .

I like to round eye-piece too. That makes me want to hold out for replacement on the D800. The low light on the D600 is good, imd sure it will be just as good if not better than the D600 D610 .

kadardr: Currently this Nikon D750 is the most balanced 24 Mp FF DSLR. Good for the Nikon enthusiasts, who will not long for the similar 5D Mark III, and good for the Canon lovers as the 5D Mark III prices will match the D750 price (from above or from below depending on the D750's success). Very good times indeed.

Yes , but who wants to deal with the crappy customer service from Canon when you need to send it in for a cleaning or repair. NOT ME.

Anyone should learn with one light for a while before they move to two or three lights. One light can be simple and beautiful but the shots above are not ver good in my opinion.

Sometimes you can just tell when a camera is going to be a flop. This is one of them.
