Head torch

Shoot­ing af­ter dark means you need to take safety se­ri­ously. An es­sen­tial item of kit is a head torch. If pos­si­ble, pack one with a red light as this won’t af­fect your night vi­sion as much as a white LED light would.

Re­mote re­lease

To avoid knock­ing the cam­era, use a re­mote-re­lease ca­ble or a ra­dio trig­ger. The cam­era’s self-timer mode will also al­low time for any vi­bra­tions to dampen be­fore trig­ger­ing the shut­ter.


With long-ex­po­sure times, you will need a tri­pod to cap­ture a sharp im­age. Tem­per­a­tures will be cold, so ei­ther use a tri­pod with foam sur­round on the leg sec­tions or add some DIY foam your­self to save your hands from freez­ing.
