Lightning Photos

Took these pics from my back porch using my Canon T2i. Thought I would share.

I dont see how you time it perfectly. Do you just take a shit ton of pictures all at once and delete all the others?
Edit: BTW sweet pictures

Well I did take like 100 pictures. But I set my exposure time to 5 to 10 seconds a picture. I also turn on my self timer so it takes 10 pictures in a row. I also set my camera up on a tripod. So I end up deleting a lot of pictures but it's well worth it.

Thanks!!

Bulb leaves the shutter open for as long as you want, even getting multiple strikes on one image. You've seen the streaks of car lights and such. Give me a second, I've got a few around here somewhere.

EDIT I found a couple, I know I have more but cant put my finger on them.

I see what you are talking about. I'll have to try that on the next round of lightning storms I get. Shouldn't take too long for that to happen.

Thanks for the advice!!

I really wanted to see that too. But unfortunately we had cloudy skies those nights. Which in southern AZ is a rarity on its own.

Peak is over, but there are still plenty to be seen, I went out in my back yard and caught a few this morning. I've got a time lapse point-n-shoot on a tripod as I type this trying to catch something. Not gonna get any if you don't try.
