Last night we had spectacular lightning. Never attempted it before. Used combinations of "scene / night landscape" mode and mirror lock up. Shutter did not release when depressing button. What should I have done?Thanks,

What position is your "Focus Mode" switch set to?What was your "AF-C Priority Selection" set to?

Focus Mode set to AFA. Should I set it to AFC? Seems like lens was searching to focus when depressing shutter button.
Unless you have something in the foreground that you also want to be sharp, the usual method for lightning is to switch to manual focus and set the lens to infinity.
