You may think it takes mad skill to get the most awesome night shot.  Often it does, but with some practice and after reading about my mad skills it will be a breeze.

Some Tips to get the best shots ever

1. Have a sturdy tripod.
Having a nice sturdy tripod can make or break a shoot.  These things are absolutely vital  especially for long exposures.

2. Use the lowest ISO possible
When we use the lowest ISO that you can get away with then we will have less grain, which i like

3. Use bulb mode
Bulb mode is a crazy mode.  You press the shutter release and it stays open until you let go.  For using this I like to use a remote so I can lock it down for really long exposures.  It takes a little practice but you can get it down

4. Go somewhere crazy dark
If you go where it is crazy dark then you will not have as much light pollution.  It is also good to shoot during the new moon.

5. Dress Warm
It gets crazy cold at night you know bring more than you think you will need and you can always take off a layer.
