    Hi everyone,

    It's been a while since I visited the forum, but I recently started to get my camera out a lot more, now that I'm travelling a lot.

    I tried my hand the other night at time lapses, for the first time, and more specifically a night to day time lapse. I used shutter priority mode, and I had an intervalmeter set at taking a shot every ten seconds, had my ISO set at 400, with an exposure of 1 second. During the night time of the time-lapse, I got very decent footage, but when the sun rose everything got way to exposed. I ended up going into manual mode and adjusting the exposure times and the f stops, but that created a very weird time lapse.

    Any tips or tricks to get decent time lapses that are both adequately exposed both during night as well as day?

    Btw I was shooting with a D7200 if that matters, with a built in intervalmeter.

    Set Auto ISO & Auto white balance.
    I would set Aperture priority so the depth of field stays constant, while the shutter speed & ISO can float.
