LIGHT SHOW ?


 Several nights ago the skies were aglow with lightning.
I thought that I certainly should be able to catch some
 of it on camera.
86 shots later...this is it.








Clearly I need some "lightning" lessons..

I have tried this as well - and you are better at it than me. More practice needed!

Hello Missy! pretty captures of your light show! I love to watch a stormy sky! I am hoping for a sunny weekend. Enjoy your Friday and the weekend ahead!

The only thing I can offer is to make sure your camera is set on "action" shots....that will give you several frames in a row...so your timing can be less accurate. You certainly have patience!!! Just don't get fried out there!!!

So quick and fleeting, hard to catch on a camera!

I love the last two shots. Beautiful. Lightning storms here in the summertime brings worries of wild fires unless it comes with lots of rain. We've just had a few days of thunderstorms and rain! It's been really nice having much cooler weather. We are appreciating it while we can. We know the heat is returning soon.

Hey, you got it!!!

I don't mess with my camera settings. But do just turn the little dial sometimes. (easy!!!) For something which is quick, like rain falling or snow, or lightning... I'd turn the dial to the one, which shows a kid and dog. I see this as trying to capture a child playing, which happens quickly.

Mmmmmmm... And that's the amount of my cam use advice. LOL!!!!

Great pictures though . . .
Do you set your camera on a tripod and have one of those shutter extension thingy's?

Beautiful. I've never managed to do that successfully.

Very neat! Lightning is hard to capture (no pun intended). My husband used to shoot it and fireworks years ago with a conventional 35mm and film. He said slow shutter speed and a tripod.

I don't photograph lightning or the moon well either. Never have read any of my camera manuals though... that might help a teensy bit.

Missy, I think you did very well. I love to take moon shots and sunrises...they never turn out like my sunsets. So you had rain also...girl, I am going to have to brush up on my swimming if this doesn't stop soon. Blessings to you, xoxo,Susie
