Hi friends. A few of you have asked about my situation here in Florida relative to #HurricaneDorian however, I've mostly been off the Instawebs. ⁠⠀ Thankfully, our greater SW Florida SRQ/Tampa area has been spared impact. It is also looking good for most of Florida's east coast to be spared as well, since many early models had estimated far greater impact. ⁠⠀ Like most of Florida, it's been a "hold your breath" holiday weekend. And like many, I've been keeping a close eye on Dorian. I've been watching "Tropical Tidbits" on YouTube, Levi has been giving a nightly update that is just plain outstanding.⁠⠀ Also, if you're interested in keeping an eye on the front lines, check out our friend Jeff Gammons @stormvisuals ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ This image is what's known as "rain wrapped". The bolts were really popping hard on this night, but because there's so much rain (rain that gets smoothed out over a 25 second exposure) there isn't much light reflection off the water. The light reflection is being (mostly) diffused by the rain. Had there been no rain between me and the bolts, I could've lessened my time exposure and improved my reflection. The different and changing environments force us to constantly adjust our settings for capturing the bolts. If you are interested on learning how to shoot lightning, please subscribe to our @BigBoltMedia YouTube Channel. We're going to post another video soon..... I promise lol.⁠⠀ 📸: @ch808_shoots ⁠⠀ This image captured with:⁠⠀ Canon EOS 5D Mark IV⁠⠀ Canon EF24-105mm f/4L IS II USM at 105mm⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Settings:⁠⠀ f/13⁠⠀ 25 seconds⁠⠀ ISO 200⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #roamflorida #satysaltyflorida #floridasaltfreak #floridagreatshots #pureflorida⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #weather #itsamazingoutthere #lightning #stormchasers #tempestchasers #flwx #floridaweather⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #longexposure #amazing_longexpo #longexpo_addiction #longexpoelite #nightshooters

Hurricane weather 💨💨💨 ⁠⠀ Hurricane Dorian's expected landfall is sometime Monday morning, so, my Florida friends, you have plenty of time to prep.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Get your water, medications and non-perishable foods, flashlights, batteries (etc) sorted, as well as the needs for the elderly, kids and pets. Then batten down the hatches!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ As a bonus tip, eat up your freezer stuff between now & storm arrival. In case of prolonged power outages and the possibility of needing to discard/throw away freezer foods.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Double bonus tip: follow these accounts which will probably/possibly do some hurricane IG livestreaming:⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ @stormvisuals⁠⠀ @damon_powers⁠⠀ @justin_labadie⁠⠀ @jhwhite50⁠⠀ @bigboltmedia⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ This image captured with:⁠⠀ Canon EOS 5D Mark IV⁠⠀ Canon EF24-105mm f/4L IS II USM at 50mm⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Settings:⁠⠀ f/5.6⁠⠀ 1/640⁠⠀ ISO 100⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #roamflorida #satysaltyflorida #floridasaltfreak #floridagreatshots #pureflorida⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #sunset_stream #moodygrams #instagood #canonusa #teamcanon #earth_shotz #ig_shotz #earthfocus #earthpix #earthofficial #ig_color #agameoftones ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #weather #itsamazingoutthere #lightning #stormchasers #tempestchasers #flwx #floridaweather@HurricaneDorian ⁠⠀

Dem bolts⁠ ⚡️⚡️⚡️ ⁠⠀ So, I've been waiting all year for THIS part of the Florida lightning season. Once it arrived I have found myself too busy to chase/shoot lightning. Murphy's Law. (and tiny violin 🎻 lol). Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next few weeks with more time.⁠⠀📸⚡️ ⁠⠀ I wanted to revisit this post from last year. When I originally posted this, I had incorrectly mentioned it was shot at 20 seconds, when, in fact, I had dialed it down to 5 seconds in hopes to better freeze the girl and still maintain a good window for a bolt. Her upper torso is a little blurred, but overall I'm satisfied with this image.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you haven't subscribed to our Big Bolt Media YouTube Channel, please do. We have tutorials on how to track and shoot lightning as well as some fun, storm chasing vlogs. Plus, as an added bonus, you get to bask in my soothing monotone, which can be used ASMR style to help you sleep.... it's science.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ This image captured with:⁠⠀ Canon EOS 5D Mark IV⁠⠀ Canon EF24-105mm f/4L IS II USM⁠⠀ at 24mm⁠⠀ Manfrotto 055 tripod⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Settings:⁠⠀ f/6.3⁠⠀ 5 seconds⁠⠀ ISO 200⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #roamflorida #satysaltyflorida #floridasaltfreak #floridagreatshots #pureflorida⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #weather #itsamazingoutthere #lightning #stormchasers #tempestchasers #flwx #floridaweather⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #longexposure #amazing_longexpo #longexpo_addiction #longexpoelite #nightshooters⁠⠀ #moodygrams #instagood #canonusa #asmr #ig_color #agameoftones ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #jaw_dropping_shots #artofvisuals #shotzdelight #fatalframes #heatercentral #all2epic #usaprimeshot ⁠⠀

Decided to try a different style of photographing fireworks. A "focus shift" technique (or "defocusing") yielded some very interesting results! Making the fireworks look like flowers or aliens or other abstract things. These are also available for print at: https://ch808shoots.shootproof.com/gallery/6993723/

Storm season has begun in Florida! Nice, dramatic clouds, lightning and rain... lots of rain! But they leave behind puddles that can be used for creative framing.
