Whether you are a brand new photographer looking to shoot at night, or a seasoned amateur and/or pro wanting to step up your game - Gabriel Biderman's book provides information that can be used by all levels of photographers. From what camera equipment to everyday (or night) equipment to techniques that some will think are out of the box. Great book to stimulate one's mind and creativity.

            Comments about Peachpit Press Book: Night Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots (First Edition):

            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.

                            I'm 36 pages into this book and I do have to say it has A LOT of useful tips in the book! I'm just getting into photography as I've been doing videography for over 15 years and I just got the CANON EOS 70D for Christmas and I'm loving it! I mean it tells you what gear to get, explains shutter speed, ISO, aperature (which I understand already), but it's never a bad thing to rehash it all too as I might learn something new! Overall, great book and it even has color photos in it too!

                            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.
