Took this picture at 1 am on a weekday. I went out to put out the trash and saw some crazy lightning clouds so I ran inside and grabbed my gear. I haven’t taken lightning shots before so the first couple hundred pics were just a waste. After a while I figured out what settings I needed on the Sony A7s to get it just right. 20 second shutter, ISO 200 i believe at F11. The A7s was awesome at focusing in the dark. This was taken on my deck looking out over my backyard into the Sturgeon county area. It was pretty satisfying to see when reviewing the pics in Adobe Lightroom.
Click to watch My buddy Andrew came up with this idea so we did it for fun. We were going to show it at my wedding but we ran out of time. This video is two and a half years old but I just recently took the raw footage and edited the small amounts of video into this little featurette. Enjoy laughing at me.
