Light Meters: Reflected, Incident, And The Histogram

EARLY-BIRD SESSION STARTS YOUR DAY!

7am, THIS THURSDAY, 5/9

Light meters: All modern cameras have them.  But perhaps you have been considering a separate, hand-held meter.  Perhaps you already have one.

In this session you will use your camera to measure subject brightness, and then use hand-held meters (yours or mine) to measure.

You'll see first-hand the primary differences between reflected-light metering and incident-light metering. You'll test some applications of both kinds of metering, and observe what happens when the meters get fooled.

You'll also examine the relationship between light-meter measurements and the placement of highlights in the histogram.

*****************

Your support through voluntary donations makes these meetings possible.  Thanks in advance.
