|Focal length:||50 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1 sec|
|Notes:||A well known technique for taking lightning pictures. Use a manual focus lens focus infinity 50-75mm any longer and you will have problems with clarity, use bulb mode, full manual and around F/8. Know the place before hand, know where lightning will probably strike, here that big building. Frame and use a shutter realease cable or remote and hold untill lightning strikes. Post process by cropping. No garantuees the more you do the easier it gets.|
