Night photography is my thing too.
The trouble around here is not so much cold as rain – rain, rain, rain. I’ve discovered the solution: it’s called Holga. If it gets wet, who cares? It’s $25 worth of plastic. But it gives you a big fat square negative all the same. I’m OK with the vignetting and softness around the edges.
Anyway, back to the book: another interesting recommendation. There are too many good night photographers out there. It can be either inspiring or discouraging, depending on how you look at it.
