We last heard about cinematographer Ryan E. Walters of Portland, Oregon on the Sekonic site, he was featured in the Sekonic ProSpeak series. He’s now running a highly-educational behind-the-scenes blog called Lighting Alchemy. If you have any interest in making sure your exposures are right on the money, there’s no excuse not to check out this valuable and free resource.
In this introductory video, “Lighting 101: Using the Meter,” he discusses the needs and use of a light meter, and showcases his Sekonic L-758Cine. If you’ve ever wondered why you shouldn’t just rely on in-camera exposure metering, this is a great place to start.
