The biggest problem I've run into with night photography is noise on the photo sensor. My camera has a noise reduction, but it doesn't completely solve the issue. I will say I love shooting photos at night with some artificial light source. Anything that's lit becomes so vivid in the image. In addition to this I really like to take night shots and make them into HDR photos because it really helps bring out the detail.
Matt, if you decide to take some night shots of your plants can we talk so I can make some HDRs of them?
If you have a dSLR your photo sensor will be much larger then a PAS camera, hench, less noise at higher sensitity.
Just use a tripod and hope the plant isnt moving too much in the wind and experiment with different shutter sheads and apature.
Generally, the longer the exposer, the better depth and color.
The great thing about digital cameras, you get to change sensitivity between shots and see the results instantly
