Quoting dixiedaughter:
I am still waiting for my first lightning shot, congratulations, this series is great!

The last two days we've had electrical storms in the area with no rain for an extended period of time that I've been able to exploit :)

Mainly you need a tripod (not 100% necessary, all the ones from 7/22 I didn't have a tripod and just used the car window to support the camera), and just keep doing 2-6 second exposures. Messing with your white balance settings also change the color of the storms/actual bolts :)
