Malibu Sunset

Malibu Sunset by David Delgado

I’ve been living in Los Angeles for many years, this was my first time at the Malibu canyons. I reached to the top of mountain and it was great! I thanked Bobby Gibbons for sharing this location in one of his photos; that’s how I got there. View of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Barbara Island all the way across.

Big Sur

Big Sur by David Delgado

I stayed in San Francisco for a few days I wanted to drive to Los Angeles taking the Pacific Coast Highway. It was a beautiful drive! I’ve been wanting to go back to Big Sur that I might plan to stay there soon. The photograph was shot almost during sunset at the Pfeiffer Big State Beach, is a must-see place if you are visiting Big Sur. Location: 36°14’18″N, 121°49’0″W See Map

Guatemala by David Delgado

Happy new year! I really excited about 2014. I have so much plans I want to accomplish just as I did in 2013. I’m planning to travel to places I have been and places I have not been. Anyway, when I took this photograph I was amazed seeing so many high altitude crops in Guatemala, it reminded me when I was little living in Colombia (which I’m planning of going later this year). This shot took place in Chimaltenango when I was heading to Lake Atitlán. Location: 14°49’60″N, 91°6’52″W See Map

Queen Mary

Queen Mary by David Delgado

The Queen Mary – Long Beach, Los Angeles, California. I took this photo one year ago, when I came home, I went thru the photos I took of the Queen Mary I was not really happy with results, so I left those photos behind and moved on. It was until now I went thru those photos again and I noticed I did a good job shooting the big ship. I enhanced the photo using my favorite new tool Nik Collection Analog Efex Pro. I’m happy with the final result. Location: 33°45’11″N, 118°11’29″W See Map

Viejo San Juan

Viejo San Juan by David Delgado

Visiting Puerto Rico has been one of my best trips so far. It was so easy to get around the island and find great spots for more than just photography. After an early dinner in Old San Juan I went for a walk in El Paseo de la Princesa and I saw this wonderful colonial building during sunset. Location: 18°27’49″N, 66°6’56″W See Map

The Other Side

The Other Side by David Delgado

Mexico—United States border wall. View of the Tijuana Lighthouse and the Monumental Plaza de Toros. I was planning to shot this place months ago. The first time I went, the park was closed so I didn’t have any luck to sneak around since the border patrol is very strict in the area for obvious reasons. I got luck this time, the park was open and it was a beautiful sunny day. Location: 32°32’4″N, 117°7’22″W See Map

Photography Season

Summer is gone and the cold-gloomy weather is coming. That is the period I enjoy the most in the outdoors with my camera. The overcast weather and the early sunsets work pretty with the type of photography I like taking. Here are some shots I took during the photography season:

I fell in love with this iPhone app since its released in 2009. At that time, it wasn’t common to be able to enhance your photos using just your cellphone. Even though there are hundreds or even thousands of photography apps today, I still find Hipstamatic to be very special. Hipstamatic features different lenses, films, flashes, effects, and you can even order prints. Download the app

See some of the photos I have taken using Hipstamatic around the house and traveling:

LA Light

Impressive time-lapse photography of Los Angeles during night time. You must see it! The music in this video gives a different perspective of calmness to the city of Los Angeles which is a busy city. I can’t image how much time it took just to shoot these photos. Cinematography, direction, and editing by Colin Rich / Music by the Cinematic Orchestra.
