Description of eBook:
The night sky may be the most awe-inspiring spectacle that any of us will ever see. It can, however, be difficult to capture in a photograph, as it requires specialized techniques that are rarely used when shooting images during the day.
Renowned photographer Grant Collier sheds light on how to capture these otherworldly images by sharing secrets he has learned over the past 12 years. He explains how to take photos of the Milky Way, northern lights, meteors, eclipses, lightning, and much more.
Grant begins by reviewing equipment and supplies that are helpful when photographing at night. He then discusses many software programs, web sites, and mobile apps that will help you plan your shots. Finally, he offers extensive advice on how to capture and process images at night. He goes beyond the basics and teaches how to blend multiple exposures and create huge stitched images to capture incredibly detailed photos that you never before thought possible!
Description of Vidoe:
Capturing a great night photo with your camera is only half the battle to producing a truly stunning image. In the digital age, you must know how to properly process these images on the computer. An inability to do so can leave you with photos that don't come close to fulfilling their potential. This is especially true with night photos because they often have unnatural artificacts like noise, coma, vignetting, and chromatic aberration that you need to reduce or eliminate in post-processing.
In this comprehensive set of instructional videos, renowned photographer Grant Collier provides over 7 hours of step-by-step instructions on how to post-process night photos in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Grant's included watermarked practice photos that you can use to follow along with his instruction.
