WOW. I had to laugh when I checked your EXIF - Light Source - fine weather. :smile:
Lightning has a purplish color and setting the WB to daylight is the easiest way to get that. :wink:
Excellent catch Charles. That is a huge lightining strike. I see that you used 10 sec. at f8. Was the lens uncovered for the full 10 sec.??
Very impressive!! I tried to do this down at my parents and kept missing the bolts.
It was, but that was only a single bolt.
With practice you can guess at the timing for the next strike. There is a rhythm to it. Just don't get to close to the beat. :wink:
I love lightning shots! Now that we're in Kansas I'll get to try catching some....I don't think I saw lightning once in California.
Wow Charles! I haven't chased lightening for a long time. Thanks for posting this!
You should have lots of chances. Just don't get hit. :wink:
Its my second favorite thing to shoot. :smile:
I saw something on the internet that you mount on your camera and it detects the lightening and fires the camera. I just did a quick search and couldn't find it again.
I have seen a few devices that do that and have thought of building my own, but there is something about standing next to a metal tripod in an electrical storm that makes it exciting. :wink:
Way cool, Charles!
Gonna have a little talk with My D2X--see if it can do that too! 'cept all we need is lightening !
Great shots I've got one question:
Are you standing outside in the rain, under cover, or inside to get these?
