The first thing to strike me about this book is the beauty of the layout and photos. But +Jim Goldstein 's creative eye not only shows through in how the book looks (especially beautiful on an ipad), but also in the inspirational writing; he is sure of his technique and the creative process he uses.

I have played with night time and slow shutter photography, including star shots, for years. This is the first book which lays out the technique to capture a number of different slow shutter speed shots. Jim does not assume that this book is for the beginner only, or for the advanced photographer. In no nonsense language he starts with the basics of exposure so you will understand what you are doing, not just follow instructions - his explanations are short and sweet; he then moves on to the hands on stuff.

Each technique he presents begins with a list of equipment you will need, and follows through with a step by step explanation of how to proceed, including some suggested exposures to start with.

Despite 20 years of experience, I learned something new within the first few minutes of reading the book - Dark Field Subtraction. I always wondered why sometimes my star shots took forever to write to the card, and other times it was nearly instantaneous.
