I am an experienced night sky, long exposure, Milky Way, light painting, and star trails photographer, and I nonetheless thoroughly enjoyed the book, picking up tidbits and philosophical approaches, and often affirming the good habits and approaches that I've done as well. And it's also feels great to know that other people feel the same way about night photography and how it offers a deeper connection into our surroundings.
I want to also add that it is the sign of a really good teacher to take something technical, something that has the potential to be slightly intimidating or overwhelming, and break it down so that it is useful and easy to understand, but not pedantic or dumbed down. Lance has achieved that here. And since he gives photography workshops, I would bank on those being thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile. This is a book in which I believe seasoned veterans of night photography and beginners alike can embrace and love.
There’s plenty of image examples from his own and others’ work, including in-process examples showing the incremental impacts of post-processing steps. Perhaps most importantly, he is enthusiastic about night photography and leaves you eagerly awaiting sunset so you can zip outside and try it, even in your own backyard.
Beginners may find the technical explanations a bit overwhelming to grasp completely, but if you're already past that stage and have been wanting to elevate your night photography as far as you can, this is the only book you need.
