So, what I'd like to do is grab a bunch of night shots of San Francisco, notably around the downtown area, and maybe around North Beach or Koit tower.
I bought a relatively cheapo DSLR for the task, but am a little concerned about going out at night by myself to gather footage, even in the relatively safe areas of the city.
Has anyone ever done this? When I was a teen I used to do this king of thing, but now that I'm middle aged I'm a bit more concerned about myself and my gear.
Any safety tips are welcome.
