|Was actually trying to shoot for lightning. Got this nifty expensive gadget that predicts the thermowaves, electrovaporizers thingy, some complicated stuff before the actual lightning hits. Had success, with about 5 shots out of 1000. So after thinking this is it. All set up, lightning is so close to me that I feel the hairs on my head react. I start shooting. YAY for me!!!! Every lightning blast there is my camera is shooting it. I am doing the wiggle jiggle in my rubber boots and shorts and scare off the other guy that is there cus I am also talking to myself. A lot about how fabulous this is. It died down after about 1/2 hour and 400+ shots later. I am like, I am the Queen of this Lightning stuff now!. Then remembered the challenge for layers, took 6 shots. Went home all excited. Downloaded 400+ 6 shots.
Once again, I got 3 shots of lightning. Stomp around the house, still talking to myself about how the camera shot the lightning as it was in progress, curse a fair amount, make up new curse words. Then notice the last 6 shots, they are bracketed as I always shoot in 3's. So had 2 shots to work with and voila, edited this and everything was all right with the world again. The dog though, not so sure, he see's those rubber boots and knows I am going to be coming home with my new curse words, so hides.
