Night photography is a very interesting thing to do with a camera in the dark as the world sleeps. Light and color are still there in many urban places, all set on a blank black background. Therefore, go find your spot and compose.
If you can shoot at night, then more of the world is open to create with your camera. You can enjoy normal photography with a regular camera in daylight. Just the same, infrared shooting can be done in midday under bright sunlight. If you really want to, you can make images anytime in a 24 hour day, even in the dark.
