Name: Brian Sweet
City: Amsterdam, Holland
I shoot with a DSLR with 4 different lenses and filters. And sometimes when you’re on a place with great light and great surrounding, but you haven’t brought your DSLR, I find it convenient to shoot with my iPhone, as the quality of phone-cameras nowadays is pretty good.
Main photographic subject:
I love to shoot cityscapes, landscapes etc. What inspires me the most is the light, as my favorite times to shoot and at dusk or at dawn. And sometimes night-photography.
I love to capture quiet moments and reflections. Amsterdam, for example, is always busy with tourists, but also locals. So the best time for me to shoot there is on a Sunday morning, as early as possible, to capture the beauty of the city, without too many people to get in the way. Also, the light in the morning is something I love and the reflections in the morning are crisper as the boats only start sailing a few hours later. I like to take time to take my photos and early mornings are the best for that in my opinion.
