This is a great video with very practical tips and advice on how to make the most of your night shoots. Photography Stuart Palley has a really great quote in here; it's 90% preparation and 10% execution. He also says roll with the punches. Sometimes your shoots don't always go as planned even if you were really prepared. Sometimes the best shoots are totally unexpected.
He shares his favorite apps for tracking ambient light and an app that superimposes a 3D view of the sky based on where you are. That sounds extremely useful for planning your perfect night shoot. Check out the video below for all of his tips and advice.
