“To consult the rules of composition before making a picture is a little like consulting the law of gravitation before going for a walk.” ― Edward Weston
The Magic Cloth Photography Technique
What you need:
Neutral Density Filter:
To extend the shutter speed during daylight hours. I would recommend round filters, especially for damp days.
Choose a large cloth like a hat, or the same size black card. Has to be able to cover the lens completely. Better to be Black. A non-reflective colour is best. Use a straight edge of any shaped cloth.
Magic Cloth Method:
Begin with a filter or darkness for a for a slower shutter speed, then over expose the image by 2 – 3 stops.
It is easier to set a long Shutter speed. 2-5 seconds requires a fast, but smooth movement to darken the sky within a split second. 5-10 seconds allows for a extra exposure of the middle-ground.
Magic Cloth Movement
In many conditions I bring the cloth down quickly and up slowly. Bring the cloth up in a gentle, controlled manner.
