Topaz Labs Puts Denoise AI to the Test in Amsterdam

We Hosted a Free Photo Workshop in Amsterdam

Last weekend Topaz Labs went to Amsterdam to put Denoise AI to the test alongside a talented team of photographers.

We partnered with Kjell Leknes of the Amsterdam Photo Club, Nikon Ambassador Michiel Buisje, and Dutch photographer Jeroen de Jongh to help lead a group of 50+ local photography enthusiasts in a nighttime long-exposure workshop on the cobblestone streets of Amsterdam.

The Challenge was to shoot and edit the best nighttime cityscape using Topaz Denoise AI in post-production for precision noise reduction.

Amsterdam is known for its highly photogenic old-world canals, especially at night when iconic viewpoints are aglow in romantic light.

Photographing cityscapes at night calls for a small aperture and a slow shutter speed for maximum sharpness and correct exposure. But shooting in low light will always result in more grain, or noise, in your photos.

With Denoise AI, grain can be completely eliminated without the loss of sharpness.

Our friends at Think Tank Photo have offered up an Urban Access 13 photographer’s backpack to the best Amsterdam night photo submitted after the workshop—we’ll announce a winner on October 7!
