    Hello
    there is a small (very small) chance on lightning here. But the thing is, its daytime here. And my question is: how can i get a longer shutter time. I allready got the ISO on 100. aperture closed (f22) and put my polarizer in front of the lens. But i still can only get 1/10 of a second.
    Anyone here got an idea on how to get a longer shutterspeed?
    Thanks for any replies :)

    The exposure has to be correct - during the daytime, lightning isn't as bright relatively. Getting a longer exposure involves reducing the sensitivity of the film by using all the things you've mentioned and also possibly something like an ND filter. The downside to lengthening by reducing exposure sensitivity is that the lightening will be relatively less bright, so it will probably come out wishy washy.

    Hope for lightening at night - that's much easier!
