Camera Flash

A camera flash can be very hard on little sugar glider nocturnal eyes. The trick to using a camera flash is to have a lot of ambient light at the same time. This allows their pupils to adjust. For really good photos, light towers are the best choice with lots of front and surround lighting.

If you want to do dark photography, then get a camera that can do IR/Night vision and use an LED IR video light.

Animals do not see red very well so a red lamp is an acceptable choice for front lighting as well. You can buy RED GEL to use with all sorts of lamps. In the video below I am inside of a tent using a 23W CFL bulb shining through red-ish plastic.
