This is my first attempt to capture lightning. Luckily the sky pounded with massive streaks of thunderbolts everywhere. Next time I’ll choose a better location :P

Wow… turned out great. May I ask what your camera settings were? I’d have no clue how to take this type of photo…
Thanks Jessica! You sure may ask and i’ll be glad to help:P
I suppose the most important part was a remote control. I mostly shoot in complete manual mode and this time had set the shutter on bulb. I set aperture to f/5.6 and pointed the tripod to the most happening place in the sky :)
I tried exposure times between 8 – 15 seconds with ISO set to 100. Next time I intend to try a longer exposure (3 – 5 minutes) with a lower aperture (f/11 or something) :D
Gosh, I’ve got so much to learn. Manual mode still scares me a little, especially if there’s a chance of missing the shot if I spend too much time fiddling around. Always good to have a new reason to experiment, though… thanks for the help! :o)
Your welcome Jessica :)
I feel more flexible working with the manual mode now, but had similar apprehensions before I got used to it. you should fool around a little and you might just like it! I’ll mail you a few interesting links relating to this subject :)
