Published! My New and Improved eBook


book-cover

After a year of work, the new edition of my Nightscapes and Time-Lapse ebook is on the e-shelves at the Apple iBooks Store. 

In the two years since I first published this ebook, the field of nightscape shooting has enjoyed many changes, to equipment, software and techniques. Not to mention I’ve learned a lot!

All those changes are reflected in this new and expanded edition. It is 100 pages bigger – 500 pages now – than the first edition. It contains:

• 60 step-by-step image processing tutorials, all with current late-2016 software

• a dozen galleries of comparison “before-and-after” images

• 40 HD videos of time-lapse examples

• reviews of current equipment

• reviews of software, some very new – like this week! – to use in place of Adobe

• information on Nikon and Pentax cameras, as well as Canons

• In addition, many images can be tapped on to zoom up. And most text can now be enlarged in a Scrolling View for use on small-screen devices.

The previous 2014 edition garnered rave reviews, with readers calling it:

Incredibly well put together and visually stunning.”

Simply amazing! From hardware to software, it’s all covered. Alan Dyer got it right!

and “It is a must-have resource for anyone doing nightscape and time-lapse photography.”

As with the first edition, I’ve designed the ebook to appeal to both amateur astronomers and landscape photographers by providing what I feel is the most comprehensive information available in any ebook on the hugely popular field of nightscape and time-lapse photography.

This isn’t a simple 50-page PDF pamphlet, as so many ebooks are. This is an extensive and detailed tutorial, with loads of interactive and multi-media content.

There’s loads of information on cameras and lenses

 

book-page-2
 

I’ve included information on setting Nikons and Pentaxes. Sony mirrorless camera will wait for the next edition!

 

book-page-4
 

I’ve added many new images, with lots of information on how to set cameras for many sky subjects.

 

book-page-5
 

The ever popular Milky Way gets its own chapter, with information on how to – and how NOT to – process the Milky Way.

 

book-page-6
 

I’ve included lots of information about new time-lapse gear, including some units, like the TimeLapse+ View bramping intervalometer that aren’t even available for general sale yet.

 

book-page-8
 

Lots of embedded HD videos illustrate time-lapse techniques. A book about shooting time-lapse movies ought to have time-lapse movies in it. Most don’t!

 

book-page-10
 

Step-by-step tutorials show you how to process with Lightroom, Camera Raw, Photoshop, and LRTimelapse (shown here), an essential tool for time-lapse work.

 

book-page-14
 

Tutorials cover still image processing, from the basics to advanced techniques such as masking and compositing. Stacking meteor showers and star trails? It’s all covered!

 

The size and media content of the ebook make it impossible to publish on Kindle/Amazon or Google Play/Android.

How to Photograph & Process Nightscapes and Time-Lapses is available worldwide exclusively through the Apple iBooks Store, for the iBooks app on Apple Macs, iPads and iPhones.

Check it out at my website or at the iTunes sales page. 

Owners of the original edition get the update for FREE! Just open iBooks on your Mac or iOS device and check Purchased and Updates.

For new buyers, the price remains unchanged: $24.99 US (prices vary with country due to exchange rates and local GST). The book is sold in every one of the 51 countries Apple sells into.

Enjoy! And do leave a review or star rating for the new edition at iTunes/iBooks Store.

Thanks! And happy holidays to all!

  1. I’m so excited for this update! I was limited as to what I could see due to the small print. It is a fabulous book. I’m updating it as we speak!
    Thank you so much

  2. Hi Dan, The same happened to me a few days ago when the book uploaded. I could get the new edition on the Mac iBooks but the iPad, while indicating an update was available, was only allowing me to Read the old edition still installed. A few hours later the Read button changed to Update and it downloaded fine. Wait! Or delete the book and re-download it from scratch. Once you have bought a book you can always re-download it at any time.

  3. Hi Alan,

    Dan here from Edmonton.

    I loved your first ebook and looked forward to the second version.

    I know that this is out of your control but when I click on available downloads in iBooks the book does not update and I am left with reading the first version.

    I hope that this gets fixed soon as I am looking forward to reading more.

    Regards, Dan Jurak
