Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Technical Read/Analysis Though this version is a second addition to Lance Keimig’s first novel, I can certainly say that this piece provides a strong background on the history of night photography, light painting and the technical aspects of the process of night photo taking. I would strongly suggest this piece for more serious hobbyist/professionals who have a strong knowledge level with their DSLR. I think this piece is a bit too advanced for a beginner or entry level photographers.
