We have all seen that image, the one with the glowing tent under that star-filled sky. It’s really not a complicated process, but if you haven’t done it before, you may be wondering how it is accomplished.

adorama-tvCorey Rich explains the process to us in this wonderful tutorial video on Adorama TV. You can really see that it’s a simple process. But I wanted to add, that you don’t need the expensive gear that is displayed in this video.

Don’t have a tripod? That is ok, use a tree stump or something else to sit your camera on. Don’t have a huge LED light panel to stick in your tent? That is ok, cheapo battery powered cupboard lights or even candles (though flames inside a tent are not recommended). Don’t have a  Nikon D4s? Use your D3200 or other APS-C body. You can still get amazing shots like this. Remember, it’s not about what gear you use, it’s how you use it.
