HALEMAUMAU (KHNL) -- Bring your tripod. That's the advice of one of our viewers, a professional photographer, who sent some volcano photo tips in via our Talk Story link.
David Yee of Hilo says anyone visiting Halemaumau Crater from dusk to nightfall should use a tripod even when using point and shoot cameras.
He says he's encountered a lot of disappointed tourists who are frustrated that their night photos of the volcano don't turn out.
Even with point and shoot cameras, he recommends purchasing one that allows long exposure times.
