What: Hand-held Meters

Hand-held meters offer significant benefits to the craft-conscious photographer. In this meeting we will first discuss then PRACTICE:
TYPES of metering, with special emphasis on INCIDENT metering
Significance of middle gray as a metering standard
Two concepts from the Ansel Adams Zone System
Lighting contrast ratio
Subject contrast ratio
Relationship between the hand-held meter and the camera histogram

PRE-REQUISITE: Attendees should be quite sure of how to set aperture, shutter speed, and ISO on their cameras in MANUAL mode.
Attendees must bring a digital camera, memory card, and fully-charged battery. Camera must have a MANUAL exposure mode.
Hand-held light meter is recommended but optional, for those considering purchases.

Original suggestion:
Hey Len, I would like an advanced class on incident metering, such as how to operate the Sekonic L-358, uses and best practices.
