  • The Lightning Hunter

    by Chrisboswell | 31st of August, 2012

    There I was huddled beneath a metal awning next to a picnic table made of the same on a warm southwestern night. The hair on the back of my neck surely stuck straight out from the charge in the air. Yet, there was too much adrenaline flowing for me to care. So I taunted the... More

    When I show someone (non-photographer) a lightning photo, they always ask: "How do you get the timing to press the trigger exactly when the lightning is there?" I find this rather funny, because of course that's not the way it is done. I think most here know how to... More
