This is very simple, even though many people at first don't understand how anyone can be so fast in triggering the shutterrelease after seeing lightning. The trick is, you don't do that, because you will photograph lightning during the night(indeed daytime lightning photography is quite a challenge). You make use of the B shutter speed mode, which will leavethe camera shutter open as long as you want, and you wait for lightning to occur in the frame.

A: When photographing lightning, I usually have three objectives: to capture the bolt as sharp as possible; while choosing a composition that helps to isolate the lightning; and also be creative. Shoot at different times of the day. Shoot during different temperatures. Try working with color, like a red sunset or the blue of twilight.
