Excelent tips !!!!!! I just wish you had wrote these tips last year before June 30, 2011. That is when I broke every rule on your blog written here today. But if I had followed all your rules, I would have never captured my coveted "Chicago Lightning" image captured that dangerous evening. Thanks for sharing.

Great advice. Thankyou. The last time I was in a position to successfully shoot lightning was back in analog times, & I ran out of colour film so had to switch to a roll of black & white. Managed to capture a couple of reasonable shots considering I couldn't check the outcome until I got the films developed. Just waiting for a chance to shoot lightning in digital, when my only restrictions would be if I ran out of memory cards, and batteries! Lucky I keep a good supply of both on hand :)

The drama in your blog compelled me to read it through to the end. Excellent! Thanks for posting.

Great tips, and great blog!

I had to learn each one of those the hard way, and only after years of practice.

Storm photography is why I take pictures so I completely understand the passion. I have taken many images of lightning and each one is a unique and special image.

Best of luck, because sometimes you need that when photographing lightning. :)
