    Taken from my 11 floor window in SengKang

    1) Point camera at a spot that lightning has been occuring
    2) Set on tripod
    3) Attach wire release
    4) Set camera to continuous burst
    5) Set to manual mode (say 30sec shutter speed with suitable aperture)
    6) Lock wire release so that it is depressed (Like what you do for BULB exposure)
    7) Go have a cup of kopi and check your shots after some time

    Still worth it to get a shot like that after "wasting" 29 shutter counts.

    remember to find a shelter if it rains... and i wonder if there is a way to prevent being strike by a lightning...

    it'll be priceless if the lightning aims your way... despite the shots you've taken.
