Safety & Precautions

Remember when you go out to photograph at night, keep the following in mind:

  • Safety First! Make sure you feel safe. Do not go out to photograph alone, especially into unfamiliar territory.
  • Be sure to dress warmly and comfortably, even on warm nights it can cool down quickly.
  • Do not set things down in the dark. It is easy to forget or overlook equipment that you cannot see. Be in the habit of keeping everything on you or in your camera bag.
  • Do not breathe on your lens. On cold nights you can easily fog your lens. You can easily cause your lens to ice up when it is below freezing.
