#6. "RE: Lightning"
In response to In response to 0


Kilmore, AU
          

glenaa, if you don't already, use a sturdy tripod and head for your next lightning shots
Set your shutter to bulb, ISO to 100 and aperture to around f/16
Framing is the difficult part, cos you have to guess where most of the lightning is, and it's generally dark when you try to frame
Luckily at ISO 100 there is good scope to crop
Use a remote and open the shutter, wait for a good bolt, then close the shutter
It's still a bit hit or miss, but you can have the shutter open for 15 seconds or so which gives you a good chance of getting something good.
Using the same settings you can also leave the shutter open and use a black card in front of the lens, which acts as the shutter.
Experiment a bit, it's fun
