Consider: Shooting the turtle action with a VX2100 set at 1/30th second shutter speed. If you have the moon, this should be plenty of light. The VX will amplify the light to 2 or 3X what the human eye perceives. Don’t know how or why, but it does.
I’ve always thought the night shot effect was too close to a M-1 sniper scope effect.
Hate to say this because the single source of light (moon) could cause lens flare, but I’d suggest a filter on lens to protect from wave spray, inevitable at the beach.
Enjoy your Night Life!
