I met another photographer that just happens to be a lightning photographer. He invited me one night to the Kendall Camera Club for a presentation he was doing. I fell in love this this concept and tonight I grabbed my wife and son and we delved into the Everglades as storms were building. While the lightning wasn't nearly as active as I would liked for it to have been it did provide at least a few images. Very exciting images. I see my self back in the glades chasing the storm.
The settings? ISO 400, Shutter 15 seconds, Aperture f11. I also was on a tripod (duh) and used a remote release.
Who was the photographer that gave the presentation you ask? It was Robert Chaplin and you can find out more about him here: http://www.rlchaplinphotography.com/
