So there's a ton of electrical activity around my house tonight. I grabbed the D7000 and decided to take my first stab at shooting lightning. It is hard. Anyone have some good tips? I had to shoot through a window screen but I set things to M mode, f8 or so, 1.3 to 3s, ISO400. At the first inkling of a flash I hit the shutter. Got lucky a couple of times. Then I just tried a scattershot approach hoping something would happen while the shutter was open but that didn't really yield anything useful.

I know there are some devices that detect the first start of a flash and trip the shutter for you. Or maybe they work by static?
