Absolutely Amazing!

Behind The Lens

Location
Isle of Palms, SC
Time
Dawn, before sunrise
Lighting
The lighting wasn't very good due to a storm brewing in the ocean
Equipment
Shot with my Canon 7d with a Canon 10-22mm lens mounted to a Manfrotto 055xprob tripod with a 498 ball head
Inspiration
I initially went out that morning to shoot the sunrise on the ocean, set up around an hour before sunrise and heard thunder brewing in the sky. I set my camera up on my tripod and started shooting longer exposures to see what I could capture and during one exposure out of the many I was able to catch a lightning bolt on the water
Editing
I performed some basic exposure adjustments in Photoshop due to the original exposure was slightly over exposed but not too much editing to the original image
In my camera bag
Canon 7d, Canon eos m, canon 70-200 2.8isII, Canon 10-22, Canon 50mm 1.4, Manfrotto 055xprob Tripod or Mefoto road trip tripod, polarizer and ND filters,
Feedback
To get a good shot of lightning my advice is to be patient and shoot lots of exposures to get the best image
