Well, I just watch the storm. And point toward the lighting. Then I set the apature where I have great debt of field. And my exposures are usually around 30 seconds with mirror lock up, and remote cable shutter release.

Hope that Helps.

I like #11 for the arc of visible clouds, the air-to-air display, the ground strike, and enough information to know a city is involved, and no distracting power lines.

Hi,

i have been looking for a lightning trigger for quite some time. The followings seem the optimal ones in terms of cost and quality.

The expensive one which seems more professional:

The cheaper one which has lots of positive feedbacks on ebay:

Any feedback will be really appreciated from those who have experience with them.

Matthew,

I find #4 with the amount of light and strikes spectacular, but I like #7 also, looks like the crossing of the streams of plasma from Ghost Busters. I think I like the # 9 Photo the best as the underlying hills are lit well and add weight to the pic. The long sweeping bolt that travels across the frame is nice also. All in all they are wonderful captures of lightning, Great job with this series.........Frank
