Rather than going to the subject and pointing the sensor toward the camera position, can I just stay where I would take the picture, place the meter in front of me using an outstretched arm, turn the meter so it faces away from the subject (toward the camera position) and take a reading? With street photography, I don't have the luxury of approaching my subjects and then running back to the place where I want to shoot from. How do most people who use incident meters remote from the main subject take readings? Can you be specific in where to aim the sensor. In a backlit subject, if you were also in the same lighting situation, could you just turn with your back faced to the subject, take a reading pointing away from the subject?
