    Hello TPF, how are ya?

    Fantastic, thanks for asking. Alright here I am again with another ismple question or clarification if you will. Is it true that for lightning photography, all you really do is set up your camera ISO 100, shutter speed slow as can be and just hit the shutter whenever you think there will be lightning? If you think there will be a flash in the next 40 seconds you hit the shutter, say it stays closed for 50, will you have captured the lightning strike?

    For lightning, I'll use a tripod of course, and a series of 10 second exposures. This helps prevents possibly overheating your sensor. I'll set the aperture in the f/8 range, base ISO and back off slightly from infinity focus.
