    what’s with all the red light?

    My guess is, that they use red torches so that they don’t create “light pollution”. Photogs can get really angry if you destroy “THE shot”. And remember each one is “THE shot”! ;)

    The red lights are commonly used as red light does not destroy your night vision. It is a “trick” so you can look at a star map etc. and then turn off the light and still be able to see almost as well as when you eyes were fully adjusted to the dark conditions.
