I was supposed to get lightning images yesterday but instead I came up with this hahaha! This was my first time to do this. I had fun! You should try it too :).
For those who wanted to experiment, you would need a camera placed on a tripod. The time difference between the shots depends on you. For me, I took the images for less than a minute to a minute apart. Next, I compiled these pictures using Photoshop and then made an animation using Image Ready. You can visit this site for a step-by-step procedure.
Images taken on Sept. 3, 2008 at PAGASA Observatory, U.P. Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines by Erika V.
Equipment used: 8.0 megapixel Olympus FE-250 Digital Camera on a Tripod
