Lightning

April 30, 2011

Lightning could be the most unpredictable photo subject. There are a number of ways on how to successfully capture them…for now let’s focus on long shutter times. It’s impossible to click immediately once you see a flash in the sky…There are those remote controls that senses flash…but I don’t have that nor do I have the money to buy one. so the best way is to use a slow shutter speed around 20-30 seconds with an aperture of f/2.8 – f/22 at ISO 100. 🙂

  1. Very nice picture!

    I never actually get to see lightening, because throughout rainstorms, I’m hiding in my bed with all the quilts over my head. Our preschooler said the other day “I LOVE big storms and papa likes big storms. Mama don’t like big storms!”:)
