Webinar: Mastering Exposure for Landscape Photography Part 2


When your camera makes the metering decisions, some landscape shots come out great, some not so great. Using a light meter gives you the control to get the best digital capture every time.

Join host Joe Brady as he shows when and how to effectively use incident light and reflected light spot meter metering. During this free Webinar, sponsored by Sekonic, Joe will take you to some beautiful outdoor locations that will challenge your in-camera meter and show you how to come home with the best shot.

The best exposures make post-production easy. Joe will show you how two quick image edits with Adobe’s Lightroom and Photoshop Camera RAW can transform properly exposed image files into stunning photographs.

    Joe Brady … i was watching your last webinar about using the sekonic light meter … u mention that when the sun is high and u put the meter parallel to the ground then u should put your hand high in order to remove the specular highlights of the sun from the dome of the meter.. my question is……. now the scene i am going to photograph is in sunlight not in the shade .. but when i put my hand in order to shade the dome…docent this put the dome in shade so there will be a difference between sunny area and the shade area formed by my hand??…..thanks

      From Joe:
      If you were to shade the light meter’s dome with your hand close to the meter, you would be duplicating the effect of being in shade. The trick is to hold your hand outstretched as far away from the dome as possible while stopping the direct sun from creating that bright specular dot on the dome. This has the effect of accurately measuring the bright daylight around the area without having the reading skewed by the sun directly hitting the dome.
      An analogous situation might be if you were shooting a sunrise and wanted the sun to be partially in the shot. If you use your camera’s meter, it’s going to greatly underexpose the scene because of the sun. However, if you were to frame the scene off to one side without the sun showing, press the shutter half-way to lock in exposure and then re-frame, your exposure would be great.
      In both cases, you are eliminating the effect of the direct sun skewing your reading, yet still measuring a sunlit scene.
