Kerry Garrison of Camera Dojo uses a Sekonic L-358 to explain why and how you should use a light meter in this basic tutorial.
Using a light meter, he says, is “fast, efficient, reliable, accurate, all the nice little adjectives you can come up with — it’s very very handy and simple to use.” Personally, he counts on his meter for studio work and for making precise exposures when working on product shots.
