Lance Keimig was kind enough to invite me to join his Mono Lake Workshop for a night of shooting at South Tufa. For anyone serious about improving their night photography chops, or just starting out, I can highly recommend talking to Lance and Scott Martin about joining one of their workshops. Both are consummate professionals and have encyclopedic knowledge of techniques and equipment.
I can also recommend Lance's new book, Night Photography: Finding Your Way in the Dark. I got my copy, and it's full of useful information and beautiful photography.
