i first started with a PS :tongue:

day time shooting you can count on 98% junkers. out of 400 shoots i got 2 with a bolt (this storm sucked) and out of those this one was best

Yeah I have tried a few times at night, but mostly they turned out badly washed out. Trial and error seems to be the best bet.

I will try that, but my timing is terrible, I was using long exposure times to 'catch' the lightning.
