He teaches workshops around the country and leads night photography tours to places like Iceland, Scotland, Ireland, and Cuba.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, well-written, and thoroughly enjoyable book 18 Aug. 2015
By Ken C. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well-written and informative, a worthy second edition that seems largely re-written. The history of night photography is still there, and still absolutely fascinating. The book covers astro-landscape, long exposures in moonlight, star trails, light painting, light drawing, and post-processing for night photography with an emphasis on Lightroom, although the tips for post-processing can obviously be done in Photoshop or other programs as well. Lance also includes other photographers and their images, their personalities and approaches adding to the book's vibrancy overall. The book, even more than the first edition, offers a comprehensive look at the many facets of night photography, managing to cover it in one book. And yes, of course, the photos are mesmerizing, beautiful, fascinating, and gorgeously executed. It includes lots of scenarios and technical information about night photography. And that's what we want, isn't it?

I am an experienced night sky, long exposure, Milky Way, light painting, and star trails photographer, and I nonetheless thoroughly enjoyed the book, picking up tidbits and philosophical approaches, and often affirming the good habits and approaches that I've done as well. And it's also feels great to know that other people feel the same way about night photography and how it offers a deeper connection into our surroundings.

I want to also add that it is the sign of a really good teacher to take something technical, something that has the potential to be slightly intimidating or overwhelming, and break it down so that it is useful and easy to understand, but not pedantic or dumbed down. Lance has achieved that here. And since he gives photography workshops, I would bank on those being thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile. This is a book in which I believe seasoned veterans of night photography and beginners alike can embrace and love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Night photographers, here is your bible! 16 July 2015
By InfraredMan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Consider this the "New Testament" of the excellent first edition. Neither of these books are necessarily aimed at the beginner, but will definitely take the experienced photographer's work to the next level. It is the fine-tuning of the details that separates a great night photograph from a good one, and this book is all about the details. From choosing the right gear to studying the movements of the night sky to post processing techniques, no stone is left unturned. Also included are many example photographs from contemporary night photographers showing the many directions night photography can take and how it is limited only by one's imagination.

Beginners may find the technical explanations a bit overwhelming to grasp completely, but if you're already past that stage and have been wanting to elevate your night photography as far as you can, this is the only book you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good gift for intermediate/advanced night photographer 14 Mar. 2016
By Vienna Logan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I gave it to my brother for Christmas and he really loved it! He's already been playing with low light photography for a couple of years and loves to process photos on his computer. He told me this book had a lot of information he didn't have before, and great photos as well. So it was a good gift for an intermediate night photographer!
