What a great shot - I would have never guessed it was your first lightning capture. Very well done.

could I ask what's the best way to capture lightning? I've done it a few times with an old point and shoot camera, but they always came out blurry. I just recently got a Nikon D3200, a nice entry level camera I suppose, and I've caught lightning, but it just looked bad. It was too bright, or it didn't catch it, or it was just... focusing on something and the lightning was just a blob in the picture. Any advice?

Hi there! Sorry for the crazy late response.  I'm probably not the best person to explain it, because I'm really just a hobby photographer.  The few things I do know is that you must have a tripod, it is the most important thing and you usually want to use the bulb setting on your camera. As far as the lightning being blurry, i think that the aperture might need to be set higher. Sorry that I can't be of more help, but I'd try that and see what happens. :)
