The Amazing Image blog has published a story on manual exposure. Authored by Charles MacPherson, the post brings an interesting perspective to metering and photography itself. Not a big fan of manual exposures, MacPherson gives a classic example of when a camera’s built-in meter makes a serious exposure mistake.
The piece explains the benefits of using an incident light meter, such as the Sekonic L-358, to dial-in the right exposure information. Complete with excellent illustrative examples of histograms and sample photos, this post is a great primer on why a dedicated meter will help you nail your image exposures time and again. Nice job, Charlie!
