The Magic Cloth Photography Trick

What you do:


Start with a filter or darkness for a for a slower shutter speed, then over expose the photo by 2 – 3 stops.

Shutter speed

There are benefits to using a long Shutter speed. 2-5 seconds requires a fast, but smooth action to cover the sky within a split second. 5-10 seconds allows for a extra exposure of the middleground.

Magic Cloth Motion

In most conditions I bring the cloth down quickly and up slowly.

Alternative Methods

Vary the Motion to allow a dozen short exposures of the sky, rather than one initial exposure (30 seconds & over exposures only).

Spot meter for the highlights and then x 4 to get the total shutter speed.
