Aimed at serious photographers, this lavishly illustrated guide takes a close look at every detail of lowlight photography. Michael Freeman (The Complete Guide to Digital Photography, Mastering Digital Black & White Photography) offers in-depth analysis of the many techniques photographers must master for night and lowlight shooting. Point by point, he discusses how to keep the camera steady, what lenses and camera settings to use, and how to best apply flash, bracketing, image-stabilizing, vibration reduction, and noise reduction. He also outlines common lowlight situations, from stormy weather and deep shade to twilight, moonlight, city lights, and nightclubs. Finally, Freeman examines software programs and processes that will increase the quality of lowlight photographs.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Recent advances in digital photography have made shooting at night or in low light easier than ever, opening up a vast range of possibilities for capturing the natural world, cityscapes, family activities outdoors, and low-light indoor scenes. International photographer Freeman, who specializes in travel, architecture, and Asian art and is well known for his expertise in special effects, here offers a comprehensive look at the technical side of overcoming the limitations of light, including how to determine exposure, fine-tune white balance, control depth of field, and reduce digital noise. Highly recommended and nicely supplemented by Jill Waterman's Night and Low-Light Photography: Professional Techniques from Experts for Artistic and Commercial Success.
