Photographer and Photoshop guru Glyn Dewis is known for his complex composite work. He recently co-hosted a workshop in the Netherlands with Frank Doorhof, a photographer and educator, who, along with some lens troubles, convinced him to start using a light meter.
“I used to think using [a meter] would slow me down, however it’s done quite the opposite. Setting up lights, getting backgrounds and subject perfectly exposed from the very first shot and leaving me to get on with shooting is taking no time at all. I’ve set up the similar lighting more times than I can remember however by being open to learn I’ve now changed the way I set up, especially in the studio as it now involves the use of my new friend…the Light Meter; a friend who has potentially saved me a lot of time and money….”
