My area isn’t prone to frequent storms, but you can bet your bottom dollar that I’ll be out there with my camera when one does roll in.

    Beauty! Excellent capture, Steph!

  • Thanks Daniel. I love your lightning shots. Nothing like the rush of a storm.

    Top shot Steph ! We just don’t get enough quality storms down here do we… I’ll bump into you out there some day/night. :)

  • Thanks Tony. Yes, I’d love a few more storms down here :) I’ve seen some of your work in the local gallery – beautiful stuff!

    Excellent shot Steph! I’m really interested to know how you took it. It looks like it might be a long exposure, maybe 2 or 3 seconds? I love all the different light elements.

  • Thank you Matt. This was about a 30 second exposure at f/13, ISO 500. Once the sun has gone down completely, you can leave your shutter open for as long as it takes for the lightning to go off basically. Some shots I did were only 5 – 10 secomds where as others were longer, especially if you want multiple strikes to show up in the same shot.
    And, of course, a good tripod – and don’t stand under a tree :D

    Thanks for the info Steph. (Especially about not standing under a tree!) I love pushing the limits of my camera and playing with light. I guess it is a similar technique to fireworks.
    Keep up the great work and don’t get struck by lightning!! :)
