It is my first time trying to capture lightning. It does not happen a lot in Vancouver and therefore I don’t get a lot of practise. Tonight I just happened to be at home and the camera batter is charged so I played a little. It is a lot of fun.
Setting the camera to shoot at 4 sec shutter speed helps a lot. Since I don’t have a remote for the Sony camera, I had to hold on to the shutter button so that it shoots continuously. Of the ~200 shots I took, this is the only one I can share. The other 190+ shots didn’t catch any lightning. The few that did, not all are nice.
It is kind of like fishing, except no life is harmed from shooting lightning with a camera :)
