The Magic Cloth Technique:


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

Exposure time

It is easier to set a long Exposure time. 2-5 seconds requires a fast, but smooth action to burn the sky within a reflex time. 5-10 seconds allows for a controlled exposure of the foreground.

Magic Cloth Motion

I usually lower the cloth very quickly and bring it up gently.

Different ways

Change the Motion to capture several short exposures of the sky, instead of a single medium exposure (30 sec or more exposures only).

Meter for the sky and then times four to get the total shutter speed.
