    I want to blur moving clouds. But when I set the exposure for long enough it just comes out white. What can I adjust to make it work?
    Rocking a Canon EOS Rebel XS with a 55 and 300 mm lens.
    Also I have an 8MP phone camera, not much but its good when you have nothing else.

    Nd filter to expose the clouds correctly but extend the shutter speed.

    Shooting at night is also a good option.

    If you use an ND filter it will cut out some of the light depending on which one you use so you can drag out your shutter.
    Also try closing up your lense. ( big f numbers).

    I think to blur the clouds effectively, you will need a very long exposure, hence the ND filter, or later or earlier in they day exposure. The other option would be to pan your camera to blur the clouds.
