I was wondering how to capture something like cloud movement over a long period of time in the day. If I set my camera to f36 and leave the shutter open for even a minute the shot is way overexposed. What is the proper method to achieve this kind of a shot?

Thanks.

Check out neutral density (ND) filters...

what exactly do these filters do?

They cut down the amount of light entering the lens, without altering the colour values... so you can do 'long exposures' in daylight...
