Aurore, you learn to guess. I first learned photography on a 1948 Welta Welti, a really nice little 35mm folder. No rangefinder, no meter, just a finder. It doesn't take long to learn to guess the distance and light to within "good enough" tolerances!

I never use a meter now, unless I'm shooting LF or under very difficult conditions. All my folders are meterless, as well as the FED (see my indoors shot in the Anniversary Gallery - exposure by guesswork).
