The Magic Cloth Photography Technique is a an exciting way to record a high dynamic range scene.

What you do:


Begin with a filter or low light for a longer exposure time, then over expose the scene by 2 – 3 stops.

Shutter speed

It is preferable to work with a long Shutter speed. 2-5 seconds requires a fast, but smooth action to darken the sky within a split second. 5-10 seconds lets you have a controlled exposure of the foreground.

Magic Cloth Movement

In many situations I bring the cloth down with a fast movement and up slowly.

Different ways

Change the Movement to capture a dozen short exposures of the sky, rather than one initial exposure (30 sec & over exposures only).

Spot meter for the sky and multiply that shutter speed by three or four

“If the photographer is interested in the people in front of his lens, and if he is compassionate, it’s already a lot. The instrument is not the camera but the photographer.”
