    Dear Manfrominternet,

    Allow me to suggest that you first need a working philosophy regarding exposure. None of this will make sense till you have a solid idea of which approach to exposure control will get the results you seek. I suggest you read the first 9 chapters of this treatise I wrote on exposure and development control. It may put you to sleep but I hope it will give you a sense of where you might devote your time productively.

    Or use the darkest tone to set your f-stop on Zone 3 and closedown two stops (F and or T). Example as above Meter EV8 f16 1 seconds ~ Taking f22 .5 seconds.

    I keep an EV chart to double check myself sometimes when I stray from the meter. ev-exposure-chart/
    Thank you for your advice and the link to this chart!!! I really appreciate it! I just printed it out.
