Brief Directions

Yes, this shot used a TRIPOD. While being very excited to have my chance at lightning shots, I was not able to hand-hold most of my shots. Some I did hold for 1.5s. For this particular shot, I used a wireless remote, BULB mode, and my 55-250mm IS lens. ISO was set to 800, only because the flashes were SO bright. F-stop was only 5.6. I manually focused the shot based off of the numerous flashes on the horizon and wanted to have a wider aperture and less grain from the ISO.

Notes

When the lightning storm pauses, get ready. Flashes tend to build and don't click the shutter to close too soon. You'll often miss the best show at the end.

Description

A nearby storm out at sea during a warm summer night provided a wonderful show of color! This orange color is 100% natural and occurred earlier in the night, around 8pm. Later, the color changed as the storm moved down the coast.
