I was trying to make a timelapse of a flower unfurling in the morning.
As the time progressed, the sun continued to rise and the ambient light became brighter and brighter, as you can see in the following photo.
At the end it is so bright the photo is basically white bright light.
I have set the aperture to 5.4. The F-stop was f/6.4. The shutter speed was set to 1/40. White balance was set to 'Bright Sun' (a setting in my camera)
The reason I did the above it that in my past timelapse exercises, if I do not manually set the above value and left some on auto, the changing light condition will lead to flickering (rapidly changing exposure between frames). But this fails miserably in this situation.
What I can do to handle this kind of environment/setting?
