HDR Photos in Historic Nassau Church

So, I went to Nassau in The Bahamas once again, this time for business, I believe this is the 4th time this year and I set to go back at least twice more before the end of 2010. The good thing of traveling several times to the same place is that once you photographed all […]

The Rusty Garage

HDR photography, like it or not? I love it. Of course, like many others I don’t like it overdone, and I know sometimes its difficult to know where and when you are crossing the line, so my take is that if I think I went too far, then I probably did. So I always go […]

Desert View Watchtower | Grand Canyon South Rim

The Grand Canyon in Arizona offer great opportunities for travel and landscape photographers, but if you do a little of research most of the pictures are done outdoors, however there is also plenty of opportunities inside the historic buildings within the park, in this case inside the Desert View Watchtower located in the South Rim.

The Magnificent Hoover Dam

In a recent trip I had the opportunity to visit Hoover Dam, and I was really impressed by such engineering marvel, specially when you think it was constructed between 1931 and 1936, and also because of the massive effort to build this massive concrete structure and the difficulties the project presented. Nevertheless the six companies […]

Rural Mailboxes

Driving to Grand Canyon somewhere close to Williams in Arizona, I started to see unpaved dirt roads entrances from the route, at first I didn’t put a lot of attention, but then I noticed mailboxes cramped along wood structures on the side of the roads in every entrance. I’m not sure why, maybe just because […]

Paris Las Vegas

Everybody knows how amazing is Vegas, “The Entertainment Capital of the World” with major resorts all over, shopping, fine dining and of course, gambling, ahhh I always want to go back. As far as photography there are infinite opportunities just in the Strip alone you can spend days and days and keep coming from more. […]

South Pointe Park | Miami Beach Photo

One the best outdoor locations we have here in Miami to take pictures is South Pointe Park. This is an urban park situated in the SoFi (South of Fifth Street) area in South Miami Beach, really a great place that was completely renovated in 2009.

Colorful South Beach

If you walk in South Beach you’ll find neon, art deco and colorful buildings all over the places, needless to say this is one of the top travel destinations in the world. South Beach is in my backyard and to be honest I don’t go there as often as I should, from people to architecture, […]

A quick visit to the Miami Railroad Museum

About 4 weeks ago I went to the Railroad Museum, here in Miami. I really loved the place; there are plenty of possibilities and awesome shoot opportunities. The subject was ideal to try some HDR, like always I use HDR to try to show the image in a more realistic way trying to capture a […]

Yes, we can see it different…

Let me tell you, one of the things I love most about photography is that like many other photographers, I’ve learned to see the world in a different way. Composition, lighting, textures, are just some of the elements photographers are constantly looking to create compelling images. I can see images almost everywhere, even when I […]
