    Got to try some lightning shots a few weeks ago. Thought I'd post a few.

    Being a newbie myself and having attempted and failed, I have to say that what I see is very good indeed.

    I like them a lot,

    I wouldn t know how to acheive such work though

    what settings would you require to, with such a fast shutter speed get decent light at night (is the lightning enouh ) and would that be acheivable with my Canon Powershot SX10 IS

    I've tried this as well, no luck so far, but you did really good here. I enjoyed looking at these :)

    you can get lightnings with any camera as long as you are extremely lucky. if that is not the case, a dslr with bulb option and a remote control is a great help, just hold the shutter open until one lightning appears or more... you have to be careful not to over do it as the sensor will heat and create noise and you might blow the other light sources.
