Finally I was able to do my first lightning photos! This was done during a lightning storm last week that was 40 miles away.
I now realize lightning is very hard to photograph. Sometimes you can miss the opportunity to shot it and sometimes you can get cool photos of lightning.
My photography mentor called me up last saturday to photograph lightning at night. He was grand and responsible for me and he taught me how to photograph lightning.
Lightning can be very dangerous to humans. Sometimes you can be struck even when you don't hear thunder and you can be shocked and even sent to the hospital. Lightning is caused by negative and positive charges that are in the air. A few months ago a woman and man were killed due to Lightning. This is a very dangerous situation.
This was a very exciting thing for me to photograph lightning and I hope to get more lightning pictures soon!
