Hi everyone. I took this photo last summer, and meant to post it here for feedback and advice. This was my first time ever shooting a lightning storm. I really didn't know where to start with settings, the opportunity to shoot the storm just presented itself, so I went out and shoot. I had a remote shutter which I just held open until a flash of lightning happened, and let it go immediately after. In most of the shots, you could either only see the lightning and no clouds (the rest of the image was black), or you could see the clouds, but no actual bolt -- just a large area of over-exposed image. Advice on settings and feedback would be appreciated!
The settings for this shot were: 20mm, f/5.6, 19s, ISO 800.
