#OwnTheTwilight, a short workshop on how to take photos in the Golden Hour

Twilight is sometimes called The Golden Hour. During twilight the darkness moves in on the light or vice versa. This period in the days often makes for the most beautiful photos, but taken photos in twilight can be rather tricky. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has such a good camera and lens that even during twilight hours you can take amazing photos with it. We've asked photographer Vincualize to take some twilight photos for us and share some of the secrets that make up a successful twilight photo.

Awesome Night Pictures of Amsterdam

Renzo Gerritsen is a 22 year old photography student in Amsterdam. Maybe you remember this name, because we featured his awesome pictures from SAIL Amsterdam 2015 from the roof of the Mövenpick Hotel. Renzo has been always fascinated by night photography. He dreamed away by looking at the skyline of Paris, Dubai or New York, but then realised that he goes to school in a city with the same beauty: Amsterdam. There are a lot of photographers who try night photography in Amsterdam, but they mostly shoot the same places like Dam Square, the canals or the Rijksmuseum over and over again. Why would you do that? That's when Renzo started to look for different and unique vantage points. Fortunately, Amsterdam has a few buildings where you can photograph the city. In this gallery some of pictures. Other pictures can be seen in his new photography website AmsterdamUnseen.com. On this website you can find beautiful photos of Amsterdam.
