Michiel Buijse left the Dutch Air Force to establish his own business named “Behind The Lenscap”, where he offers photography workshops. His specialties are landscape, cityscapes, and night photography. Michiel’s specialty is nighttime photography and he encourages his students to capture the beauty of light at night. His motto is “capture common things to creative awesomeness”.
Early this month, he published a series of breathtaking images of Amsterdam at night. His photos include breathtaking views of skinny houses along the Amstel canal, the Torensluis and the Lekkeresluis bridges, and a magnificent view in Central Station. The lights from these objects are further enhanced with their reflections on the famous canals.
Amsterdam is the largest city and capital of the Netherlands. Sometimes called the Venice of the north due to its many canals and bridges, one of the unique ways to explore the city is through canal cruises. It has 165 old canals and the 17th century canal ring area inside Singelgracht has been recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site.
Some of the famous people who hail this city include Baruch Spinoza, Anne Frank and artists Vincent Van Gogh and Rembrandt Van Rijn.
