The Malecon of Mazatlan, Sinaloa

Miguel Angel Victoria Fotógrafo

The Malecón of Mazatlán Sinaloa is considered one of the longest in the world, on it can be seen some of the beautiful attractions of Mazatlán just like its beaches, sunsets and the sea.
The Malecón Mazatlán from south to north or north to south has a length of twenty- one kilometers, along which can be found monuments , ancient buildings , hotels, restaurants , bars , discos, shops , cinemas, banks , clinics, people, among many other things.

For Mazatlecos “natives of Mazatlán” their Malecón is the best place for release stress; they cross it daily and always find a reason to be surprised.

In each section of the nine that compose it ( Puntilla- Ferry Pier , Lighthouse, Centennial , Olas Altas , Claussen , Avenida del Mar , Camarónes “Shrimp” Sábalo “chad”, Cerritos, Cerritos-Nuevo Mazatlan ) the different stages of the history of this beautiful tourist destination is reflected.
Very early in the morning as well in the evenings there are hundreds of locals and visitors who exercise in any of the sections of the Malecón.
In summer the warm season of Mazatlan, entire families take to the Malecon to enjoy the refreshing breeze of summer evenings, visitors join the nice custom.

How this Virtual Tour was made

The equipment used to perform virtual tour are the following:

  • Nikon D810 DSLR Camera
  • Lens Sigma 8 mm Fisheye
  • Nodal Ninja NN4 Tripod Head
  • Manfrotto 190 Carbon Fiber Tripod
  • Remote Switch

The software processing of the image was

  • Lightroom to process RAW files
  • PTGui for stitching images
  • Photoshop general and local settings
  • PanoTour Pro for generating virtual tour
Night shots usually require high sharpness in its entirety and the only way to accomplish this is minimizing the opening of the diaphragm, by doing this we increase the depth of the field, normally I like the image depth around f / 8 and f / 11.
Of course, this reduction in the flow of light is to be offset by a higher exposure time and/or increased sensitivity in order to obtain a properly expose picture. The time I settled in these photo spheres was half a second to 25 seconds.
It was a real pleasure to do the virtual tour and walk at night through the beautiful Malecón of Mazatlán, very clean and bright, the scenery is amazing and many families take the opportunity to go for a walk and enjoy all its attractions. I hope to return soon to continue taking photographs of Mazatlán.
