Okay, those of us who've been around for awhile have heard all of the raves and shouts about the Flip Video? Despite several attempts to capture lightening shots with my Nikon SLR and my Sony Cyber-Shot, I could not get a good shot. So, I jumped online to ask the photo experts their opinion. See them here: I received a bevy of good tips including a link from Bryce Mohan explaining the idea behind shooting fireworks - which just so happened I had posted on when he shared - here. You will see that I had managed to take some fairly decent shots of fireworks, but had not thought about doing the same thing for lightening.
So, are you ready? Drumroll, please! I leisurely went outside last evening as the lightening storms had started, and took my Flip Video. I "thought" there were some good bolt shots, and actually did find one. I don't know if those of you who have a Flip know it or not, but you can capture a shot from your video - which is exactly what I did. I came up with this....Not bad, huh?
I thought this turned out really cool. AND it was taken with the Flip!!! Yet another good reason to have that handy little camera in your possession.
Our monsoons the last week have been absolutely amazing.....lots of wind, rain, and damage and LOUD claps of thunder......I grew up here with the monsoons, and one thing I can say? They are never, ever the same. But we LOVE the moisture we get. ;-)
