Top gear #2
Torch, clothes and backpack
“It’s obviously very dark at night when you’re miles from artificial lights. Wear a head torch so you can see where you’re going.
This also leaves your hands free for taking photos, and they’re great for posing in night photos when you stand in shot, looking up at the sky,” says Alyn,
“Dress sensibly, even on mild evenings, as it can get very cold very quickly when you’re stood around taking long exposures at night. So wear lots of layers and warm winter clothing and a hat. A good camera backpack is useful too as it means you can walk around without your bag slipping off your shoulder and causing an accident in the dark.”
