Damn, i have to work in a few hours. It was well worth it tho. I hope i don’t see no more lightning for the night, cause ill get up and take some more pics.

I missed a huge lightning strike while i was setting up the camera. It went horizontal in the sky, and it was huge!

If you like pic’s like that, I have TON’s, somewhere in the neighborhood of 50-60. And, that’s only since I moved to SC. The storms here are rediculous! Lightning literally every 10 seconds. Sooo, it works perfectly with a open shutter around 20 seconds and a darkening filter.

I usually use a F-Stop reducer of 1, F Stop at 2.8 and a 20 second shutter speed.

Then, when I get real lazy, I set up the tripod and put it on intervalometer and automatically take 1 picture every 30 seconds for 30 minutes…

The lightning actually scared me last night.

I would see the lightning, but therer was no thunder. I was like omg, TRIPODS, and not the kind you put a camera on. To my relief I started hearing thunder and there was no EMP pulse, so I knew I was safe, this time.


Ebay buyer problem...what do I do??
#16

Seems tough to time those pics just right.

Those are awesome.
How do you do it though?
I have tried but I don’t know what I am doing.


#21

I was watching that shit too! Lightning flashing many a second and no thunder…the funny thing was that I turned on HBO while watching this storm to Tom Cruise asking “Where’s the thunder?” at the beginning of War of the Worlds :lol:

Nice pics micah. Too bad buffalo doesn’t get many of these storms…

I used Bulb setting, F8, remote, tripod, no flash, ISO 100. Wide angle lens, in my case a 18mm. Hit the shutter, wait, wait wait as soon as it strikes, give it like 10 seconds, and hit the shutter again. Usually they are around 40-80 second exposures…

wimp images/smilies/tongue.gif shoulda been outside taking pics instead images/smilies/smile.gif

I was out in the field 20 feet from a tree taking most of those pics. I got drenched, but it was worth it!
