A few blog post ago I mentioned how this summer I was going to storm chase and last night I kicked it off with an impressive lightening show over Forresters Beach.
They predicted a thunder storm around 11pm and it hit around 7pm with rain and then lightening around 8pm. So I headed out to Terrigal and shot towards Forresters Beach (the headland in the background on the right) to see the best of the lightening.
I played around with iso’s, f stops and shutter speeds to get the best combination of strikes, ambient light and low noise (noise seams to be the biggest issue). Still a work in progress and learning heaps. At the end of the summer I will be publishing an article about my findings of shooting both digital and slide film which will be accompanied by a feature in the field video as well.
