Author and photographer Beth Ruggiero-York has filled what she sees as a void in photography literature with her new book, “Fun in the Dark: A Guide to Successful Night Photography” (published by Lulu).

“There is a strong curiosity among photographers of all levels and types about taking pictures at night, whether landscapes, stars or cityscapes,” Ruggiero-York says.

Photographers might wonder what setting to use, how to focus at night, what special equipment is needed, etc. “Fun in the Dark” answers all the questions and provides straightforward instruction to get out at night and take pictures successfully.

Ruggiero-York hopes readers will come away from her book understanding the facets and principles of night photography. She believes her book will create “Aha!” moments for readers.

“Having always had a passion for the beauty of the night, I had a natural desire to create images of the world after dark,” Ruggiero-York says. “I read, experimented, failed, tried again, studied more and, ultimately, began sharing with others and teaching what I had learned.
