Close-out for ALP

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 and keep in touch with everyone at National Parks at Night at Thanks again for taking the class, I hope you enjoyed it.
