Capturing lightning on a cell phone camera can be difficult. It’s about timing. Maybe there’s an app out there that does continuous shot like my SLR does, but my camera phone needs me to press the damn button every time, and there’s a few seconds between when it takes the picture and when I can take the next one. I’ve had zero success in capturing lightning on my cell phone camera every time I’ve tried.
But on October 8th we had a great storm roll in over Meridianville and just north of Moore’s Mill (Chase Valley), Alabama. The view in my back yard was amazing and the lightning was incredible! Bolts and fingers everywhere! I tapped the hell out of that button and BAM! Not only did I get one, but I got several. I’m including all the ones I got, even the mediocre ones, because I’m just too damn excited that I caught lightning on my cell phone camera!
