Storm knocked out my power last night at 0215. Lightning was cracking through the sky all night. These are the shots i got before i knocked out again.

Very cool!!!


seen/heard what?

and thanks :)

Thunder and lighting, we're in a pretty bad drought down here. We got A LOT in Houston last night, but no rain. :wtc:

Here's my crappy attempt from my back porch. I wasn't going to move out into the open since it was on all sides of me.

Cool! I thought about going out to try and get some lightning shots last night but I never got around to it.

How are you guys setting up the shots? Long exposures and hoping for lightning during that time???

setup: tripod, cam on manual exposure, f/22 (f/16 one of them), bulb mode, iso 200, manual focus on lens and put it on the infinite loop.

the point in the direction you see the storm and hold shutter button to keep it open. wait for lightning to strike and let go, or you can wait for multiple strikes if they are coming down fast enough.

i really need to get a remote shutter. any suggestions anyone? prefer wireless.

i press and hold teh shutter on my grip. i dont have a remote and not sure how to set timer on my cam for x amount of seconds. i would still prefer to hold the button (on grip or when i get a remote) down myself though.
