    Not silly at all, in fact I've picked up a very productive habit from advice given here on the forum... that is, guessing the exposure of the scene I'm about to photograph before triggering the light meter... you become pretty perceptive pretty quickly at judging the exposure of a scene, someone somewhere suggested going around without a camera, light meter in hand doing just that as an exercise in reading light and evaluating exposure... probably best to stay around the house or enclosed garden for this exercise just in case someone tries to have you locked away for an indeterminate period

    I think you may need to explain this one

    I can see a difference in my own work. Thirteen of the images in Portfolio Three were taken with either an 8x10 or 4x5. The remaining three were taken with 120 cameras.

    Great gallery... The Five Guys made me remember I haven't had breakfast yet. I'm going now, to feed myself and will look in again when I get back. I see some images there that make me want to spend some time.

    Nice!

    A good friend of mine who is a professional landscape photographer often goes out for days exploring light at different times on one subject before he ever takes the camera out of his car. It's not uncommon for him to check the light on one subject a few times during the day over a few days. Dragging the camera out is a distraction on the process of finding the right light. (Yes, I know you all are wondering what he does if the light magically appears just one time in that process. The camera is never far away if that happens. Do you all set up the camera and wait for the light?)

    I sent him this:
