Dramatic Landscape photography from the land of ice and fire


A very pleasant sunrise at Kirkjufellsfoss on the Snæfellsness peninsular. The waterfall and mountain are close to the fishing village of Grundarfjörður.

A Magic Cloth image

The Magic Cloth Technique involves restraining the total amount of exposure to various portions of a landscape during a longer exposure. Under normal conditions, the upper section of a landscape is lighter than the lower half. During daylight, a Neutral Density filter is used. No colour is added by neutral density to the scene.

The Magic Cloth method has a similar effect to a soft grad filter and also can produce a Reverse Grad effect. It is probably best thought of to be a night photography technique, which is daylight accommodated with the utilization of an ND filter.

This technique that is very cheap and certainly will give excellent results. Additionally it is really dynamic. You’ll be able to capture all the sky in a single go to give depth to the clouds. Or you can alternatively use short bursts to supply additional movement to the clouds. It is also very useful for waterfall shots. It is possible to utilize the fabric to maintain a dry lens through the exposure.
