Learn To Express Your Vision In The Drama Of The Night Sky
"Photography is about personal vision. This book is a toolbox; use the tools as you see fit. I won’t be bothered if you prefer a different color balance or opt for a greater sense of motion in star fields than I. My hope is that you will find a vision of your own, enjoy the creative process, and share the beauty of the night landscape with others"
- Jennifer Wu, author/photographer
Milky Way, Yosemite National Park
Zion National Park
The techniques are well explained and lead readers through the process ... Photo tips the authors impart include photographing star trails, moon phases and twilight; capturing phenomena such as auroras, noctilucent clouds and those mercurial meteors., Oregonlive.com

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Thanks to this book, my first time out of the gate, I had over 200 images that were properly focused and exposed, eliminating the need to stack, dodge, burn, or spend more than 10mins in Lightroom doing post processing.
Admittedly, these techniques are quite simple once you understand how to set-up the camera. The thing I lacked was a "guru" who could simply provide the "secrets" on how to take the shots.
This book met my needs and as the title indicates, it is a field guide.

The text is well written and makes for a pleasant read. It is also very informative and well organized.
The pictures included are very nice, some are really stunning.
