While the functionality and care of your camera gear are important, you should still consider your own comfort when you plan for your nighttime shoot. Check the weather forecast and if it looks like a storm may be on the way, you should obviously reschedule your shoot for another day. If it is just chilly, however, make sure you dress and pack accordingly because if you are not feeling safe and comfortable you are more likely to call an end to your shoot early, which obviously means no more beautiful nighttime photos.
If there is some chance that your night shoot will take you to an area of low visibility, make sure you remember to bring along a flashlight to light your way and prevent any accidents from occurring. If you get caught out you can use the flashlight of your smartphone, but as you are probably aware this can quickly chew through your phone’s battery, and you always want to have your phone charged up and ready in case of emergencies.
