Certain times of the day are sacred to avid smartphone photographers. The golden hour is a prime example – many of us relish capturing moments illuminated by soft, gentle hues of the rising or setting sun. While night photography can be just as amazing, shooting in low light can be challenging for the average photographer.

But for users of the Samsung Galaxy A and S series, after-hours photography provides the perfect opportunity for you to flex the features of your camera, including the Pro Mode1 and Night Mode2, to take a variety of creative shots – from slick light trails that capture the energy of your city to ethereal shots of the sky and moon.

And if you needed a nudge to plan an after-dark photography outing with your friends, let it be the upcoming Blood Moon on May 26!
