Ok, go ahead and use a meter. And in sunlight, it's going to tell you to expose ... sunny 16 anyway.Quote:
If I was using transparency, I'd be using a meter.
Meters are good for tricky lighting conditions, but most natural outdoor lighting situations (sunlight, clouds, gloom, etc) are not tricky. Once you know them, it becomes pretty pointless to meter. The sun hasn't changed in a few millennia. The real challenge is making the creative decision how to expose, which the meter won't help you with anyway.
they make a meter, sensitive enough for wales?Wow!
Sunny 16 conditions can be judged purely on the shadow definition which is a function of cloud diffusion of sunlight.
