Here are a couple more of my lightning shots, and we are near a thunderstorm here right now, with thunder about every 4 to 6 seconds. The links go to
my portfolio at D P Challenge, where I have learned quite a lot about photography.
This one was done from a shed, Details are with the photo in the DPC site.
It was shot at 2 sec shutter speed. This one would be a good one to photoshop into a shot similar to the original shot if someone wants to give it a
try. The original shot was pretty much straight from the camera, and cleaned up a little with iPhoto basic edit. The last ones that I posted were
right from the camera.
Gulf storm at night
From a moving sail boat under motor power. I shot this while standing watch late at night because I was bored and didn't want to fall asleep. This is
a 6 sec hand held exposure. I would expose until I got a bolt, then put my hand over the lens for the rest of the exposure, so that it wouldn't
double expose if another bolt hit.
10 minutes before the original image in question here
Re, about the altered image, where you were checking the width of the image of the bolt. The whole purpose of this thread is to develop and discuss
the image, so I have no problem if you want to dissect the shot/s in any way you want.
I am enjoying the discussion, and enjoying researching the image.
