Iceland vik photography
The beautiful black sand beaches at Vik on the South Coast of Iceland is a great place to plan a few sunsets. This one was nice as the sun set just beyond the stacks on this January afternoon.

Purchase an signed Magic Cloth photograph.

Magic Cloth Method:


Use a filter or low light for a for a slower shutter speed, then over expose the photo by two to three stops.

Shutter speed

It is preferable to work with a long Shutter speed. 2-5 sec requires a fast, but smooth movement to burn the sky within a reflex time. 5-10 sec allows for a extra control on the exposure of the middle-ground.

Magic Cloth Movement

Normally, I use very fast downward motion and slow, careful upward motions.

Different ways

Vary the Movement to capture many short exposures of the sky, instead of a single medium exposure (30 seconds and over exposures only).

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