Image 5 of 101 


Some of these first lightning pictures were taken shortly after I had purchased my new camera and I was still learning some of it's features and settings. These were all pretty much done with some of the automatic settings. So the brightness was rather intense in some of them. But these first shots did provide me with the data I was able to use for all my other shots. Learning the best options for all my exposure and aperture settings was really helpful. 

These first images were also prior to my purchase of a remote shutter switch. So, to capture the lightning shots I was using the longest setting of 30 seconds and I would just wait for a lightning strike and then cover up the lens until the time delay was finished, and the shutter would close. Now I just use my switch, open the shutter and wait for lightning, then close it, and open it again for the next shot.
