  3. I love the second photo on the beach, well edited with lovely lighting.


  4. G’day Tony.

    Since the screen goes black when you expose, how do you know where
    the edges of the cloth are?

  5. Hey Bazz,
    THANKS for a great question…
    what you do is watch your lens and you will be able to see if you cloth is covering half, quarter, three-quarters etc. You need to translate this to your image – this means that you need a good memory of your composition. So when you compose, make a note of where the horizon is. Is it in the top third? This would mean that you could bring the cloth over the half way point of your lens before you expose the sky. My favourite trick is to pick 3 cloth points on the lens and work the 3 points during the exposure. My 3 points are usually around the rule of thirds grid (Horizontal lines).

    (I need to do a video of this, so much easier to show than say!!)

  6. So…you invented the “black cloth technique” did you? Photographers were using this technique during long exposures in the 1800s with plate cameras. You never invented this technique.

  7. Nowhere have I claimed to invent this technique. I mentioned the black card and even posted a video of Ansel Adams using a similar technique in the darkroom.

    Karen Mathieson, I think you are a very sad case.
