I am wondering does anyone do high speed photography.

I want to try and capture lighting landscape but just want to get some pointers?

I have captured lightning before and I always use the bulb settings ....
open it for 30 second intervals and hope for lighting to hit during that window.
Its lot of fun ... Good luck

Thanks for the info. For focus do you set for infinity or manual set to the landscape?

Focus to infinity open to the biggest aperture the lens allows you and open for 30 seconds are more.
I dont have a lightning example of my shot online to show you ..but this shot is done with similar settings.
