Had a lot of storms last month, so one night, I grabbed my camera and my tripod, and I posted up on the porch. Caught some decent shots of God's fireworks. Some of these were really close, and the thunder was so quick and so loud that I thought I may have soiled my drawers a couple of times. Sure was fun though.
These were mostly 5-10 second exposures.
(After this shot, I decided to head back into the house. This one was close. And loud).
Mind you, there are not fantastic shots, but I was aiming to more capture the actual strikes and bolts. Next it is to post up in a great spot with a good foreground during the next thunderstorm. (If I can muster up the courage to do it.)
I have mine backed up 3 times. I copy the pics off of my CF onto the desktop. I do most of my post processing work from there. When I am done, I will copy all of the pre and post files to an external Lacie drive. At some point, usually once a week, I will back all of that up again on yet another external Lacie drive. That may be a bit excessive, but I am less likely to lose images (and a lot of work) as I have in the past due to a HD crash.
