We decided to dedicate a section of this blog to showcase our travels and adventures.  We have been lucky enough to see some amazing places and be assured we carry a camera with us just about everywhere we go!

del Sol new Super Toy | Nauticam housing for Canon Mark lll
10.30.2012 in Adventures, Main, For Photographers | by Sol Tamargo

Just a couple of weeks ago we received a new amazing piece of equipment, a Nauticam Housing for the Canon MarkIII , we are like kids with a new toy, this is so Exciting!!!

Last saturday I was invited by a friend to go diving to Cozumel, since I didn't have a wedding to shoot (sorry Mateo!) I thought It was the perfect opportunity to "baptize" the new baby in the ocean.

My heart beats faster, my whole being feels in a state of trance while underwater... thankfully I had the best dive buddy I could ask for and he was watching over me, while I was mesmerized by the beauty and totally inmerse in learning the new housing, playing with the flash and trying to capture the magic of the underworld.

We have use 3 different brands so far in housings for our cameras, Nauticam is the best I have ever had in my hands.. I'm smiling really BIG!!!

The textures are amazing! I feel like a giant flying over a different world, the sponges are the buildings, all kinds of different houses for all kinds of different creatures living there... wo

We did 3 dives, the first one (and amaaazing!!) I didn't bring down the camera as I had't dive in more that 6 months and it was a deep dive with strong currents getting in and out of caves.. so I was a little nervous about first being able to have a good dive... I did great... except at the end when I went up to fast... oops!! My dive buddy almost had a hearth attack... I managed to came back down to continue the decompression..., I was ready to bring the camera to the second dive.

All this images are with the 35 mm lens, I decided that my next photo-dive adventure will be with a macro and in a place with less current, so I can stay in place and photograph the tinny little creatures all around., it is really incredible! everywhere you look, every inch .. there is life...

Costa Rica + Panama Travel Photography | del Sol Photography
04.22.2012 in Adventures, Main | by Matt Adcock

Ever year we try to plan a "TRIP" where we take off at least 3 -4 weeks to dedicate to see other paradises in this world. One of our absolute favorite things to do is to see the world, observe the cultures and document life around us. Very often, we are inspired by nature and find that Costa Rica and Panama are busting at the seams with eye candy for photographers…

We traveled to a friends wedding over the christmas holidays and visited Panama City and the Miraflores Locks and then were off to the mountain city of Boquete Panama where we were greeted by rainbows nearly every morning and every afternoon. One of the most amazing elements about Boquete is that the town is sitting on the edge of a cloud forest and thus nearly daily there is a breeze blowing this misty rain into the valley of these HUGE mountains and extinct volcanoes. The mist is called "bahareque" by the locals. This has to be on of the most incredible forces of nature I've ever seen…
