My first shots getting lightning on my Nikon D60 (but not my first shots ever). I am just looking for some hints and tips on what can be done to make better lightning shots, if possible. My setup to capture these was first actually TRACKING the storm (I'm strongly into meteorology too), finding a few spots I already have picked out to watch it, then hopefully point the camera in the right direction. 20 second shutter timer, usually set to F/11 aperture, and at 18mm. ...and yes, they're resized down to about 50% or so of their original size, not including cropping that's already been done.
