HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH LIGHTNING
Learn to use standard long exposure techniques and a few unorthodox ones too like hand holding, open flash, and exposing by moonlight. In the Lightning Gallery 1, I gave general instructions about lightning photography. In this gallery section I'll talk about each image specifically and how I took it.
The image above is an example of hand holding long exposures while driving through a storm. The red streaks on the right are the taillights of a car that I passed purposely for the picture. The other streaks of light in the photo are from a street light and the highway reflectors. The orange light in the bottom of the picture receding to the horizon is from my headlights. Exposure duration approxamtely several minutes, aperture unrecorded
