    Playing with Light in the Dark!

    This book is a great addition to any photographer bookshelf. The book covers the most basic to professional questions and procedure when it come to unlocking the creative mysteries of low-light photography. Not only including subject such as how different types of natural and man-made light affects the photo taken; but also includes a section on the art form known as light painting. The entire book is full of great examples and explains all of it contents in a organized way. Great Photo Book!
