Night photographers have one big thing in common: a true love of the dark. Rather than looking at night photography as an extension of daytime shooting with added complications, they embrace the unique challenges of nocturnal photography for the tremendous wealth of creative opportunities it offers. That's just what this book does. But if the idea of setting out into the deep, dark night with just your camera (and maybe a cup of coffee) gets your creative juices flowing, dive right in. Lance Keimig, one of the premier experts on night photography, has put together a comprehensive reference that will show you ways to capture images you never thought possible. If you have some experience with photography and have always wanted to try shooting at night, you'll learn the basics for film or digital shooting. If you're already a seasoned pro, you'll learn to use sophisticated techniques such as light painting and drawing, stacking images to create long star trails, and more. A chapter on the history of night photography describes the materials and processes that made night photography possible, and introduces the photographers who have defined night photography as an artistic medium. A chapter on how to use popular software packages such as Lightroom and Photoshop specifically with night time shots shows you how to make the final adjustments to your nocturnal creations. In this book you'll find history, theory, and lots of practical instruction on technique, all illustrated with clear, concise examples, diagrams and charts that reinforce the text, and inspiring color and black and white images from the author and other luminaries in the field, including Scott Martin, Dan Burkholder, Tom Paiva, Troy Paiva, Christian Waeber, Jens Warnecke and Cenci Goepel, with Foreword by Steve Harper.



*Includes the most complete information available for learning the art of light painting
*Covers both film and digital shooting
*Stunning color and black and white images from some of the world's most well-known night photographers provide creative examples of the techniques discussed within the chapters

Review:

"Lance Keimig, a commercial photographer and teacher of night photography at the New England School of Photography, with over twenty years of experience in this field, is changing the attitude toward night photography. His book, Night Photography: Finding Your Way in the Dark (copyright 2010), provides you with all you need to go from the uninformed, haphazard shot in the dark to an informed and systematic approach... BOOK PROS: one-of-a-kind source book for night photography; well written and easy to read; both film and digital shooting covered; many example photos; advice from multiple expert night photographers including their color and black and white examples.. I believe this book will be to night photography what Light: Science and Magic is to lighting and Digital Exposure Handbook is to exposure, the go-to source for information."--PhotoFidelity.com

"This fantastic book explores the shifts in thinking required to not only work around the difficulties of shooting at night but also to artistically and creatively exploit the subject to the full. There are some truly inspiring images contained with the pages and the text is informative and engaging."--Digital Photographer, page 110
