Magic Cloth Photography is a a unique technique to expose a high dynamic range scene.
Magic Cloth photo tips
ND Filter: (only if you are shooting during the day)
I recommend screw-on filters for damp weather conditions.
I like to get as low as possible for foreground detail so quickly adjusting legs are certainly nice characters to have on your tripod. Arrange your tripod so it becomes sturdy. Magic Cloth movemnts can cause vibrations. A solid tripod is essential for high end long exposure photography.
Don’t heighten the center column unless it is absolutely essential. The center column is the weak spot of the tripod.
Sometimes your tripod has a hook underneath, suspend something from it to give better strength. Many travel photographers carry a special harness that they can fill with stones to give a heavy weight which will support the tripod well – even in strong winds.
What you do:
Start with a filter or low light for a for a slower shutter speed, then over expose the scene by 2 – 3 stops.
There are benefits to using a long Shutter speed. 2-5 sec requires a quick, but controlled action to cover the sky within a reflex time. 5-10 sec lets you have a extra exposure of the middleground.
Magic Cloth Movement
In many situations I bring the cloth down quickly and up slowly.
Change the Movement to allow many short exposures of the sky, rather than one initial exposure (30 seconds & over exposures only).
Use your spot meter for the sky and
