I plan on taking some pics around my University tomorrow night; I was just wondering about some general tips for night shots. I really just want some nice skyline or building/sign shots. FWIW I have a Nikon N55, a Sigma 20mm 1.8f wide angle, and a Kodak 80-200mm zoom. I don't however, have a tripod. Should I invest in a mini tripod to take out with me? Lugging a big one doesn't seem appealing, but I know for long exposure shots...or at least really slow shutter speeds, stability will be very important to how the shots come out. My whole goal here is to not use flash. Wow I really hate flash, or at least the flash on my camera. It could just be that I'm an amateur though. Any tips would be appreciated!
