Yesterday I was out with another LF Photographer photographing some of the vanishing old buildings of Birmingham.
We set-up the camera's ready to capture the first building, when I pulled out my light meter, which is a Sekonic L-308 S Flashmate, that is capable of doing incident and reflected light meter readings.
But he insisted that what I was about to do was no good and that ideally I required a Spot Meter!
Ok the spot meter was a lot easier to use, and the results seem pleasing!
But surely this has not always been the case!
I'm interested in hearing other ways of metering a subject, Ok I do a lot of studio photography so the light meter I have is ideal for that. But could I have used my light meter?
Only I plan on taking the camera out again, possibly tomorrow if so how do I meter the scene (Old Church & Grave Yard) I'd hate to screw it up, I only have that one light meter and cannot afford to buy another light meter just yet!
