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 :)
I would say 1 out of 200 is good enough. Sometimes, you could have sit there all night with nothing. Nice shot.
Thank you Howie. It was getting really wet but worth braving the storm :)
Wow… absolutely stunning photo. The purple hues addes a sort of fantasy surrealistic feel to it all. Oh hi Chun! It’s me Bryan (Shorudan)! When are you coming back to Singapore for holiday!? :)
