Due to a video hosting change this tutorial is currently offline. I will have it back online soon.
Shooting lightning is really not that much different than shooting anything else when it comes to trying to “get it right” in camera, but lightning does present a lot of variables that simply don’t exist in most other genres of photography. In this tutorial, I explain why I believe that you should ALWAY shoot RAW when photographing lightning, and a few things that can be done to recover an otherwise overexposed lightning shot.
I hope you find this short tutorial useful and always appreciate any feedback you might have.
