Photographer Captures Lightning

Photographer Captures Lightning

His storm photos were on display this summer at the Washington Pavilion, as part of the Beauty in the Beast exhibit. 

Avid nature photographer Paul Schiller was capturing more photos Tuesday night as storms moved through southeast KELOLAND.

Schiller has rolled along with KELO storm chasers in the past and his photos can sometimes be jaw dropping as he catches the beauty in nature. 

"I do it because I can get great images. First of all, it's fun and second all of the images are unique to the prairie," Schiller said.

Much like weather technology, the technology with his cameras is always changing. 

"What this is, is a lightning strike and it automatically triggers the shutter when it senses or sees any kind of bright light," Schiller said.

Schiller used his new technology Tuesday night near Tea and was able to capture these lightning photos.

"I had vantage points from both directions to capture those images and it was fun," Schiller said.

But getting great pictures is more than just knowing how to press a button on your camera.

"What I would recommend is to get to know your camera, know how to capture in different lighting situations and practice," Schiller said.

It's practice that he has perfected.
