A high sense of good quality SLR camera is also a prerequisite. To use my hands equipment is Canon EOS 5 d MARK III. Shooting time circle to the bigger the better, the f is the ideal setting. Iso setting for ISO1600-3200 or concrete numerical set according to the light sensitivity. In addition, in setting the camera's long exposure to high noise reduction function, so that it can be under high iso shooting through machine processing to get better film quality.
