Night Street Photography equipment...
Jan 28, 2013

A photography question for everyone... how weird ;p

I'm off out for some night street photography in the city soon, and am wondering about equipment. I'm used to landscapes in the day, people etc.

obviously, body, tripod, remote release are a given.

but then i'm thinking i want to travel light. i could take all my kit, but i reckon i won't need ND grad filters, or too many lenses etc.

my thoughts are to maybe take one ND filter (in case i want even longer exposures), and maybe just a couple of zooms, like a 24-70 and a 70-200.

i'd normally use my zeiss primes, but that'll add weight to my kit bag...

basically it's a choice between light weight with a couple of lenses vs. heavy weight carrying everything....

those experienced with city photography @ night.... what would normally be in your bag?

thanks in advance
