Once I get properly storm spotting trained I will probably look into actually doing some storm chasing. For now lightning shots off the front porch and if i can swing it take some lightning pictures near some of the wind farms out here in KS.
Living near the South Florida east coast, whenever there's a hurricane headed our way I love to go to the beach and try to capture some of the dramatic clouds and waves that tend to preceed the storm. Nothing so far this year ... and not really hoping for anything because wishing for a hurricane falls into that category of "be careful of what you wish for, because you just might get it."
I actually just got my Camera Axe (open source arduino based project) a proper light transistor that I have mounted on an eyepiece ring that should handle the auto firing. I still have some adjustments to make to the camera axe but it now triggers consistently with a short burst of increased light. I have some pics up on my flickr account which I will include in this post. I am planning on building an AM based pickup sensor setup to go with light sensor at some point to increase the likely hood of catching more shots. So far my current method has been low ISO, low shutter speed (1.5s or more), and way stopped down lens (This year shooting with my 20mm f/2.8 AI-s at around F16 or so depending on the ambient lighting). Anyway here is a link to my decent storm shots off the front and back porch thus far. The newest ones are with the D800 all the previous ones were with my D7000.My storm decent storm shots thus far.
I think this is my best lighting shot I have had, taken a few years back at South Palm Beach. I think this is in the old forum PAD as well. I did the 5 second tripod shot, just got lucky but the lighting that night was pretty active so figured I would get something.
