Book: Night Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots (First Edition) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful with the details I bought this because of some of the reviews and have been happy so far. Advanced photographers don't need this book most likely but I'm more intermediate. After all, it's tough to put knowledge into action some times. Especially in a business where one second to the next can change your view on the project, location or event. This has filled in some details I had forgotten and showed me a couple things I must've skipped somewhere along the way. I would recommend this book to any beginner though. Very easy to understand and helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting read While there are references to film, I found this to be very useful. Believe there is always more to learn. Now if only the sky would clear at night so I can put what I have learned to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Informative and Very Useful This book is a great resource for shooting in low light and at night. The content includes HDR information which is how I shoot at night. I like Gabe Biderman's goofball approach to his favorite equipment and his techniques. A great buy and highly recommended.
