Lightning and Night Photography

Photographing lightning is a little different than most other photography disciplines. The primary subject of the photograph are unpredictable and the shooting conditions are as bad as it gets. 

This presentation will discuss and demonstrate all aspects of lightning and night photography including: 

• Preparation and equipment. 

• When and where to shoot. 

• Camera technique and settings. 

• Editing and post processing your images. 

The date will either be the 11 or 18th of February

    I have only one lightning shot, and that was pure luck! Would like to hear more on this topic!

      Yes Stephanie C, that is the point, the sky is much darker! I am about 20 miles east of TC, in the middle of nowhere, so the sky is very dark! :)

      I camped up in Suttons Bay this past summer and was awestruck at how clear and captivating the night sky was.

    I'm so sorry I missed it. I got caught up late at work. I hope another opportunity comes up.
