I think that I will go back to doing what Edward W. did...not using a meter at all. I understand that he made most of his images without the impediment of such extraneous and untrustworthy devices. Probably would be a big boost to my photography. Learn to trust my eyes. Work with the materials and learn to know them and what they are capable of. I have heard that if he had relied on a meter to make his "Church at Hornitas" he would have underexposed the image by at least 3 stops...go figure!!!!
