Digital night and low-light photography
Taking successful night and low-light photographs has always presented a technical challenge. How do you capture enough light to secure a great picture? How do you judge and control lengthy timed exposures? How and when do you use additional lighting? Here is an area of photography that demands the utmost from the camera, and draws on all the skills of the photographer--yet its very complexity is one reason why it is so popular. A further reason is simply that it results in stunning images: sunrises and sunsets, the night sky, dramitcally lit cityscapes, fireworks displays, and more. "Digital Night and Low-Light Photography" is an in-depth guide to the techniques a photographer needs to guarantee great pictures under challenging lighting conditions. In addition, the book examines the differences in the way film and digital cameras perform in low light, and reveals how the new features built in to many digital cameras--in-camera image previewing, white-balance correction, and ISO adjustments--can make a difference. And it shows how digital-imaging techniques can be used to rescue a disaster, or perhaps create a masterpiece.
