Well, we've come to the end of Astro Landscape Photography. I hope you have enjoyed the course, and found it useful, and informative. I've enjoyed being a part of CreativeLive's Night Photography Week and hope to see you again in another class. In the meantime, if you would like to follow up on this and get a little bit more information, I can recommend my friend and partner, Gabriel Biderman's book, Night Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots. It's a great introductory course in night photography or a refresher, and also I can show you my own book, Night Photography and Light Painting: Finding Your Way in the Dark. This book is a complete guide to night photography covering urban, full moon, astro landscape, light painting, and light drawing. You can follow me at thenightsky.com and keep in touch with everyone at National Parks at Night at Nationalparksatnight.com Thanks again for taking the class, I hope you enjoyed it.

Lance Keimig is best known for his night photographs, which are often made at the juncture of the built and natural environments. His book, Night Photography- Finding Your Way In The Dark was published by Focal Press in August of 2010, and has been translated into 6 languages. A revised and expanded second edition was published in July of 2015. He is the curator of Darkness, Darkness, a traveling exhibit of Night Photography that opened at Harvard University’s Three Columns Gallery where Keimig was curator from 2005-2010.
The classes are full of extremely important technical information that is delivered in a concise, clear manner. It is very difficult to grasp it all in one sitting. I have taken classes before in photography and I love the learning model with Creative Live .I can go back and review the information at my own pace and take notes as I go- I can even rewind and review if I miss something. This is a great collection of material and I would highly recommend purchasing the entire bundle - great job on the selection of fantastic teachers and putting together such a fabulous package on night photography.
A tremendous amount of information crammed into one single course - it can be only done by CreativeLive! Along with having such a profound knowledge and skills in a particular field, Lance Keimig has an amazing teaching style as well - he is very clear, concise and thorough. I strongly recommend this set of classes to anyone who is interested to acquire some general (or expand their existing!) knowledge of astrophotography and night sky shooting.
Last but not the least, I want to congratulate the CreativeLive for teaming up with an excellent instructor to create and deliver this STELLAR and production-wise very demanding course!
