How to make a timelapse video over a whole day (Bulb Ramping)

This method is called bulb ramping.

Shooting a Timelapse from day – night can be a nightmare without the proper equipment. For a long time I shot my sunset’s and day – night shots using the Holy Grail LRTimelapse method and making exposure changes and fixing them in post production until I finally got myself a Bulb Ramper. Bulb Ramping when done correctly can create a perfectly smooth transition with minimal post production time. The Final result can turn out to be absolutely fantastic! There are a few options for Bulb Ramping including Magic Lantern, GBTimelapse, the Little Bramper, and the Promote Controller. I’m sure there are many others but these particular ones are the most well known to me personally.
