About This Image
After a lot of trial and error, I finally lucked out and captured this lightning bolt. I'm not sure what the best settings for shooting lightning, but I used 125 shutter speed, f3.3, isa400, high color, standard tone, white/black was set to auto, and S was set to auto though I'm not sure what S is. I had to put it on manual focus (the auto focus was preventing any pictures because of the black sky), and I put it on shutter priority so that I could make sure the shutter was fast enough to keep the image somewhat stable. If you have taken lightning pictures before, please comment and let us know what the best shutter speed and other settings to use. I've always wanted to shoot a lightning bolt, so I think this is a successful first shot. This is the original version, which curiously included a purple hue.
