Video editing | Capturing Thunder & Lightning at Night
Before - It took mutilple attempts
Cool photos takes time
In order to capture thunder as photo images, it takes extreme accuracy, and the one I caught last night was simply a stroke of luck. I truly tried multiple times before I captured this cool image, and it was the very first I ever managed to get lucky with. I may have been a split second shy of capturing the awesome thunder here in the image to the right.
After - I think I got lucky here
Taking that Quick Photo
Taking quick instant photo's, and sudden snap shots of thunder is something in itself that has been very challenging, because first off if its raining outside, well good luck on losing that precious digital camera to the rain waters. I'm not sure if they have waterproof digital cameras, and I think I'll search on google for them, if they exist at all, but without such a thing it just isn't feasible to do, unless you live in an area that is quite spacious, and open to the sky, unlike many parts of a big city, and depending on your specific location.

Patience is the key to good photography besides experience
I decided to provide a much closer view of that cool photo I managed to capture that night, and if you never quit at trying to take such cool pictures, you also may have the chance to do such a thing.
This definitely takes a great deal of patience, luck, and timing as well, because I had to stand there and pretty much wait till the sky, and clouds opened up, it would light up about every other minute, or so and then I got lucky.
Next up capturing images of the wilderness, if I can get to it
What type of video camera did I use?
I own a HD Toshiba Camileo x400 23x's zoom camcorder, and its extremely accurate at capturing video footage, and this was a very good buy me and my wife made this spring of 2012. It allows you to simultaneously capture photo's while recording film, and its a digital camera as well, high powered stuff!
This is my goal to achieve with capturing lightning & thunder
Photo editing images
Some folks may utilize a photo editing tool to transform their images into some truly amazing colorful displays, and I'm pretty sure by the looks of that cool purplish background up there in that cool image up above, that such a thing was done on it. They must have used Photoshop, which you can use the online version for free, if you wish to give it a try without purchasing the software, but of course you will need to create a user account there to utilize it.
I would love to capture such an amazing photo as that one there, and potentially convert it into a spectacular display of artistry, and even though many professional photographers may prefer to only utilize unedited 100% original images. I'm still an amateur and looking to explore all of my options available, before deciding to make anything a permanent technique or approach to taking photo's, or that of editing my image captures.
