Light Up the Night by timseydell Light Up the Night by timseydell
Copyrighted image Tim Seydell Photography. Do not use without my permission.

Was in downtown Akron for the Rib, White and Blue Cookoff and Music Festival doing some photography with Sooper-Deviant and we saw some weather moving in. It made for some incredible lightning, and naturally, we spent the evening trying to capture it!

Comments and favs welcome :) I will answer any questions asked.

That's awesome.
I've seen some interesting lightning before but never had the camera (or the patience) to try and capture it :XD:
So, my hat's off to you for capturing it.

Thank you. :) This is really the first time we've tried to capture it, it's very difficult and time consuming, but well worth it!

Thank you! :) We are going to Fairlawn tonight for fireworks if you're interested(?)

I got lucky with this in terms of timing, this is 1/8th of a second with just a monopod.

Had fireworks right in my front yard from the country club. They had a great display like usual :D
