Introductory Handheld lightmeter workshop

REVISED 8.5 THIS IS A WORKSHOP FOR BEGINNING HANDHELD SHOOTERS OR THOSE INTERESTED IN LEARNING SOME BASIC LIGHT THEORY.

The handheld light meter is one of our hobby's more useful gadgets- if you know how to use it. Review technique for incident light meter reading with Jess & his model then go out on the town for a little practice with existing light. Compare your in camera meter readings with those of the handheld; learn to set your camera manually by using the meter and quickly adjust for shadow and highlight. There will be some meters for you to use but expect to be paired together in small groups around 1 meter. Phil is planning to tag along to help you with your settings.

We'll meet in the Milford Photo classroom. After Jess' presentation we'll walk to a shooting location to practice. Bring your DSLR and normal lens. A tripod is helpful but not neccesary.

$29.95 per person. Limited to APPROX 12 attendees.

Contact the store to register and RSVP without paypal. The classroom portion of this event will be held rain or shine. We reserve the right to reschedule the shooting portion to another time IN THE EVENT OF RAIN.

    What a great class. Hearing we will shoot everything in manual at the beginning of the class made me a little nervous. After a few shots and some excellent input from Jesse and Phil; helped to have a better understanding of settings and then made you focus on what you really wanted to get out of each picture. Thanks .... it made some things fall into place for me. Looking forward to the next class.

    Thanks for an informative class, Jesse. The meter is definitely something I would like to add to my equipment. It was great to have the hands-on, too. Looking forward to the next one!
    Always looking forward....

    I have a Gossen Luna-Pro that's 30+ yrs old and that I've never used. Is there any use in my bringing it along?

    Have been using my handheld light meter for a couple years now for studio work and shooting on location outdoors when using portable lighting. Figured this would be a good way to meet some of the other members and maybe pick up a thing or two. . I can bring my meter too, a Sekonic L-358. If that's okay. Would be more then happy to share it.
