When light begins to fade and night-time approaches, the majority of photographers pack away their cameras and head for home. This book aims to show why this is the last thing to do and how, with a little skill and imagination, it is possible to produce breathtaking pictures both inside and out. The book begins with a clear explanation of the technical aspects that need to be considered, such as the best equipment for night and low-light photography, which films to choose, how to ensure correct exposure in tricky situations, and understanding both natural and artificial light. The book follows an accessible subject-by-subject format and tackles a wide range of different themes and lighting situations - from landscapes and portraits, to buildings, funfairs and firework displays. It also addresses weather phenomena such as lightning, and candlelight, twilight, sunrise and sunset. The author explains how even the least experienced photographer can take successful shots at the first attempt.
