How to shoot and post process day to night time lapses.
This tutorial is meant as an introduction to holy grail without exposure ramping

Nice!

Seems like the D850 RAW files really can handle big exposure adjustments well!

Thank you,
I am shocked by the ability of the D850 for recovering shadows, while I was expecting a bit more in terms of high ISO performance.
I will soon upload another one with examples made with ISO and SS ramping to compare the results

Has any of you experience of day to night time lapses ramping aperture?
I know that it is generally suggested to avoid it, because of changes in depth of field, but if there is nothing in the foreground, I am finding that a couple of stops of aperture ramping can give very good results.
Of course to be used together with a bit of ISO and maybe shutter speed ramping.
Any thoughts?

Sure, and even with something in the foreground it can give an interesting rack focus-like effect, drawing your eye into the distance as the aperture opens up (could look choppy if the steps are too big however, best with a manual aperture lens and a rack focus motor). Useful when you want to maintain long shutter speeds.

Yes, I perfectly agree. In many cases for me ramping aperture gives excellent results.
I am currently doing some tests using a little bit of each: ramping ISO, SS and aperture, each by a couple of stops. So far the results are good
