Use a light meter

In camera metering is great, but it doesn’t account for multi-light setups, nor can it help you nail your exposure on the first shot, or properly expose hair lights or background lights with a breeze.  Just because you know how to read a histogram doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use a light meter, it will take the headaches out of lighting.

Come to our lighting and editing workshops and learn how to use a light meter. See details fo the workshops here...
