Lightning!
    #1793800 - 08/08/03 10:48 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I'm gonna classify these as "art" and post 'em here.

A mild thunderstorm rolled by a few minutes ago, so I took the ol' digital camera and fired 'er up. Here's the ones that came out good...







Incidentally, every one of those appeared to the eye as a single bolt. That is, there wasn't one flash, then another a few seconds later. Every one of them was from a single lightning flash.

For those who want tips on how to do it, read on...

Set your camera to the slowest film speed (or use the slowest film if you're using film). If you've got a zoom lens, zoom out so you're getting the widest field you can. Set the exposure time to the longest you can. Set the f stop to the highest value available.

On my camera I was using ISO 50 speed, 15 seconds at f/8.

Expect most of them to be blank. Out of 31 photos, 4 showed lightning, and one of those was a little bit in a corner. Because of the rate of wasted shots, digital cameras are ideal for this.

The blurriness in the photos is because I was handholding the camera - no tripod. If you want to eliminate that, use a tripod.

Have fun!

Happy mushrooming!

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
