Remote control positioning requires days of research and monitoring of past behaviour and then a strong mathematical head. Once the camera is positioned neither the exposure settings or the focus can be changed. At sunrise and sunset this represents a big dilemma because the light changes by a “stop” every 5 – 10 minutes. Also in fading or rising light (in this case fading) the aperture of the lens will not be so closed down as to offer accommodating depth of field.
