Default Lightning

We've had some bad storms here in st.louis... these are taken from my balcony... not the best backdrop or foreground, but its good practice

only ground strike of the set... i had more but they washed out the photo with light... i will have to speed up the shutter a little bit next time

I think those are rawking awesome. I have tried and never been able to get a good shot of lightning. Too slow.

They are all great, first and last stand out, but I like them all.

These are amazing!

One of my many photography goals in life is to photograph lightning. It looks so hard! Granted, I haven't tried yet but I know it will be. Good job!!

Lightning pictures are awesome. How did you shoot those? I was reading a blog once and they talked a lot about balancing ambient light, but keeping the shutter open long enough to capture the bolts, and all sorts of stuff. I was wanting to try it out, but we haven't gotten many thunderstorms yet. It's been all cold rain here, this "summer" has sucked so far

i set my camera on a tripod, and if i can see lights off in the distance i will focus on them if i can... its hard to focus at night so ya gotta work at it a bit... i had my aperature set at f8 and the shutter speed was maybe 3/4 to a half of a second, mode set for multiple pictures , and i just stood there... finger half depressed on the button and waited till i saw the first hint of light in the clouds and would hold the button down untill the lightning stopped, if i had a remote that could do the half press and take the picture instantaneously i would use it to prevent shaking... my current remote is too slow on the draw... its not hard to get pictures of lightning.. you just have to have tons of patience and good rain gear
