    we are a small group of urban explorers (climbing around in old underground tunnels), and now we want to start take photos down there.

    we are using a Canon EOS 10D with a tripod, we are shooting without flash, during a long exposure time and are "painting" the area we are going to take photos of with flashlights.

    we can get some decent shots but it's kinda anoying to be draging around my heavy and not so very userfriendly tripod everywhere.
    but I heard that you can take good photos in the dark with IR-filters without using a tripod and long exposure time.

    do you got any advice or hints about what is the best way to capture nice shots?

    with a portable flash (automatic) dress in dark clothing or preferably black, shield the light of the flash with your body, mount the camera on a tripod or affix the camera with a clamp to column and paint away in regular intervals, making shure you dont allow direct strobe towards the camera. if you shield the stobe in your midframe(chest, stomach etc,) and you are dressed in dark, you will not see gostly aparitions.
