Yeah T3i is pretty fun. Good nighttime shots require long exposures. You set the camera to bulb and you shoot wide open. In this case you'll have to shoot at f3.5.

Get a tripod, mount the camera, frame the picture, and snap. Usually 30 seconds is good. But I like taking multiple 10 second exposure shots and then layering them together in photoshop.
Just another casual avid anime viewer(slash)manga/light novel reader.

Also your local Northern California photographer.
