The multi-color CCD photometric study of 27 delta Scuti stars is presented. By using approximately three years of photometric observations, we obtained the times of maxima and magnitude changes during the observation time interval for each star. The ephemerides of our delta Scuti stars were calculated based on the Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method using the observed times of maxima and the period of the stars' oscillations. We used the Gaia EDR3 parallaxes to calculate the luminosities and also the absolute magnitudes of these delta Scuti stars. The fundamental physical parameters of all the stars in our sample such as masses and radii were estimated. We determined the pulsation modes of the stars based on the pulsation constants. Moreover, the period-luminosity (P-L) relation of delta Scuti stars was investigated and discussed. Then, by using a machine learning classification, new P-L relations for fundamental and overtone modes are presented.
