Behind The Lens

Location
Nebraska, USA
Time
This was late at night around midnight
Lighting
This was in the grasslands of Nebraska near the South Dakota border, this storm was tornado-warned and was very electric.
Equipment
Just my Canon and a tripod
Inspiration
Storm chasing is an interesting passion, it will bring you in some of the most remote areas across North America.
Editing
Not much was needed
In my camera bag
Extra batteries, a bigger lens, ND filter, lightning trigger, microphone and chargers
Feedback
You need to experiment with your settings for lightning photography. Depending on your camera's capabilities and how far you are from the storm is what you will need to consider. If you are getting a lot of bright flashes, you might consider having your ISO lower than for this shot for example.
