    Use a tripod, keep the shutter open and pray. I do a 30 second exposure using iso 100. The aperture depends on the amount of light. I think I was around f9 for these.

    Was that Phoenix? I live in Tucson -- The other night I stayed out for about 2 hours trying to shoot lightning -- everything set up.......the lightning struck everywhere around me except for where my camera was pointing.......not one shot!!!

    I'm very jealous right now.....LOL

    One of my favorite things in life is taking lightning picture during the monsoon season. I had only gotten a few that were decent until last night. I am lucky to have a job that lets me be out and about during the evenings. When I see an opportunity to take a few pictures I stop and shoot.
