1. Take advantage of any available light, but use it wisely.
2. Speaking of finding light, your mobile phone can come in handy.
3. Warm light is better than cool light.
4. Street lamps are “a little tough” to work with "but they can be very atmospheric".
5. Adjust your settings in this order: aperture > shutter speed > ISO.
6. Unless it’s the look you’re after, avoid using built-in or camera-mounted flash.
7. 500 ➗ your focal length ＝ the maximum shutter speed when taking photos of the night sky.
8. Find the best available solution to stabilise your camera.
9. Use PhotoPills to locate the Milky Way.
10. If you have something in the foreground of a starry night sky, take at least two shots of the exact same picture.
11. Sorry, but when the moon is out, you have very few options for shooting the stars.
12. For whirlpool-style night shots, you’ll need absolutely minimal light pollution and a lot of time on your hands.
13. Paint with light to highlight unique pieces in the landscape.
14. Don’t be afraid to underexpose your shots.
15. It can be really frustrating to focus in low light, but not impossible.
16. Be patient, pack warm clothing.
