Aimed at photographers who pack away thier cameras as soon as light levels fall, this brilliant book shows how, with just a little skill and imagination, even amateurs can produce breathtaking photographs in night-time or low-light settings. The guide begins with a clear explanation of technical aspects that must be considered, such as the best equipment to use for low-light indoor or nighttime outdoor shots, which color and black-and-white films to choose, how to ensure correct exposure in tricky situations, and details relating to both natural and artificial light. The book then tackles a wide range of themes and lighting situations, presenting specific guidance for shooting low-light landscapes, portraits, buildings, carnivals, fireworks displays, and weather phenomena such as lightning, sunrises, and sunsets.

Review: The Complete Guide to Night and Low-Light Photography

User Review  - Goodreads

This book puts low light photography into perspective and makes it far less intimidating. My only complaint is that the information is pretty old and there is a lot about film and very little about digital. It needs to be seriously updated. Read full review
