    Well hope you like them too. Pleasant viewing.

    Sorry I don't have time to go back and look at what camera you are using. If I am not mistaken, its a D70. If that is the case, you will be better off getting a sturdy pro quality tripod as the cheap $40 - $50 will not be able to take the weight of your camera. I am not talking so much about the legs as the head as these tend not to be able to hold the camera firmly enough, especially when fitted with a relatively long lens.
    A good brand to consider would be the Manfrotto. If you are not a very tall guy, then the B190 would be a really good investment as its very affordable (I think its still the cheapest pro quality tripod around) and has most of the functions you will ever need including the individually angle adjustable legs.
    Also, you might want to invest in a relatively sturdy mini tripod (no taller than 6inches high) for those times that is not convenient to be lugging around a heavy tripod, as this will come in handy to use with an existing table or even a nearby wall to keep the camera steady.
    I think there have already been other threads discussing the different brands and prices. You might want to go and check them out.

    must have for night shoot:

    -sturdy tripod
    -remote cable
    -spirit level
    -water bottle

    i usually shoot with small aperture and longer exposure....well as someone mentioned there is no right formula...just shoot and delete undesire photos, reset the apeture or exposure to suit your needs....practice make perfect.

    Hi Raine,

    Yes I shoot film for all my night shootings. I shot with a Shanghai TLR (Twin-Lens Reflex) camera on Kodak Tmax 400. Too bad I can't afford a Hasselblad or Mamiya.

    maybe hantus or something like that...less is better for shooting...don't want them to appear in your pics...

    or alcohol..drink more and get creative...you'll be swaying left and right and when you shoot..you get those artsy fartsy light streaks!
