    I give up

    For the day anyway. Trying to shoot images around our shop because we are closing it. This was my Father-in-law's dream not mine.

    Anyway, my sons wanted to use my light meter and promised to put it back. Yeah I should have known better. No meter so I tried to use my digital as a meter. Too big a PIA. I going home.

    Sometimes it's best to take a break for a while, especially if you have to find misplaced equipment.

    Good luck to you when you're ready to shoot again

    mark,
    too bad you don't have a 35mm to putz around with before you break out the LF -
    a few things i have played with that worked in a similar situation

    use the D-thing on SPOT meter and just read
    the bright spots, and the shadows then average and get
    a starting point to bracket ...

    use a handheld flash ( like a sunpack or lumedyne or norman )
    or a lantern bright light with a long extension cord ... you could put your shutter on B
    and burst / paint with light ... ( after you turn down the lights )

    and you can GUESS using sunny 11 as your basis ...
    it ends up for me when i shoot iso 100 ( rated at 50 )
    that 25-45seconds at f22 usually has me in the right ballpark
    for something like a dimly lit room

    sorry to hear your troubles !

    good luck when you go back !
    john
    im empty, good luck
