Lightning photography!?

It’s a pretty electric storm here, I thought it would be cool to take a picture of a yoyo lit up by lightning! Turns out that lightning is faster than my shutter! (No pun intended)
I think that’s what causes the cool half affects in the photos!

Photographing lightning is tough… We rarely get a good thunderstorm in CA but one night, my drive home consisted of a nice light show. I got home as the storm passed but was fortunate enough to catch this last flash with a wide angle lens and long exposure.

Last summer when I took a trip to Eureka, MO (to visit Six Flags) on one of my nights I got a nice “never in CA” light show. I didn’t have my nice camera so I figured I’d film it.
