Great introduction to night photography
on 24 January 2014
I'm just starting out in night photography, and was undecided whether to get this book or "Night Photography: Finding your way in the dark" by Lance Keimig. The reviews for both were excellent, couldn't decide which to get, so in the end I bought both!
Now that I've read them, I'd have no hesitation in recommending this one for the beginner in night photography - virtually every situation is covered, with detailed exposure guidance given, and example photos on nearly every page. Everything is covered, from the equipment you'll need, up to fine tuning your results on the PC afterwards.
Lance Keimig's book is a slightly different animal - very good, but more inclined towards the artistic/compositional side of night photography. Once I've mastered the basics, I think Keimig's book is the one I'll keep coming back to for future inspiration. So do as I did - buy both!
