Got the privilege to be invited to a night shoot yesterday at the Renton Fish & Game club in Renton, WA and tried to record some videos. Shooting in the dark has to be one of the most challenging things to attempt, especially when you have to practice safe / proper use of a flashlight. As someone told me last night, "A light attracts two things, bugs and bullets". You use your light sparingly, light the target, move and shoot, don’t let them have the opportunity to shoot back at you cause you effectively give your position away when you turn on the light.
There were 3 "simple" stages (if you were to shoot them in bright daylight) but challenging in total darkness. Here’s the video I put together. It’s mostly black but you can see quite a bit when the muzzle flash & flashlight lights up the scene.
The best was the last stage of the day when I just left my light on and ran through the stage with the paper targets. fun!
