I like 3 to 5 second exposures with a tripod. Look for a general area where the strikes are happening. Use a remote if you got one.TKO said:One of the things that I really want to photograph is lightening. Nice shot.
Any tips on recording a bolt? Just good timeing?
Funny you should say that. About 5 minutes after this image was captured a funnel cloud starting forming almost on top of our house. I was so busy getting the kids and wife down to safety that I forgot to push the shutter release. By the time I got them moving it closed up. At that point I realized I didn't capture it. :evil:daodang said:Nice catch of the lightning Charles. The stormy clouds and the houses all together convey a feeling of threat.
