let’s take a look at it incidents meter reading and see what that’s all about, to take an incident meter reading you’re
gonna need one of these it’s a hand held light meter, my photography used to live or die by these in the days of film because of course I couldn’t have a look to see what my shot looked like. the way it works is this little white cone here it’s called an invercone the place and inside behind a there is a little
reflective light sensor here and that measures how bright the inside this little Coneys
I could use that’s too reflected reading if I wanted but pointy it things but was very much point because
she camera do it far more effectively first thing you do when you got a
hand-held light meter we switch it on and you I think you can say but then
here in the bottom corner there’s a little window this is ISRO
that’s the same as the ISO in your camera seamus make sure that the I say on your
camera is exactly the same as the I say when
you meet a okay in fact I said on the Mater site
look at the camera so I say you’re using set it on your light meter because if
they’re different its gonna give you the wrong exposure because they like me to
work now how sensitive the sensor on your camera
is next what we do is we hold the light meter in front of
our subject like this we point the white kind back
to the camera in so you’ve got the camera on a pointed
at you all I have to do is press the little trigger button on the side that comes up
with an exposure I don’t know if you can see this what
it’s saying is a $500 to the second at F-four point seven so ignore the 0.7
the site 3 laotian why but these are super Acura so there we go and they don’t have to do
is to get my camera pick it up manually set a 500 for the
second F 4.7 500 for the second and i cant get F for his work and a 4.5
is really really close so that should be the correct exposure
and I can line up shot and I can take a picture let’s try on the grill her and indeed we have a nice black dark frame here I don’t know if
you can see if not we’ll but the picture it suppose you want to
use a 4.7 you wanted more depth of field say what is a smaller aperture well all you have to do it is these
little up and down buttons on the side here what that will do is it
will change you aperture so I’ve gone from 4.7 25.6 in the shutter speed when I do it
goes from the five hundredth two or three fiftieth so you can still
choose which aperture you want to use field at the field in your creativity if
you wanted to use F-sixteen kiss you gonna shoot something
you want lots at the the failed you just set it here and it gives you
the shutter speed then you can pop it on to your camera so that the light meter reading from groom 125th the FIA if we go over to the
bride it’s still a 120 for the FAA is changed by point n neva stop the
sings a very sensitive same exposure re both bride and groom
because the same like is falling on them as one big obvious drawback with these
things suppose you’re on the hard even life time you going to the poll he hiked up through the Sibel town to
Namche Bazaar and you looking across to mount everest
which is probably about 25-30 miles away you wanna take a light meter reading
from Mount Everest in the sunrise you know that again hi 25 or 30 miles
through the through the Himalayas to take a rating and even if you did by the
time you got back the light would have changed wouldn’t it bit pointless really that is where the
reflective me to rating if your camera really comes into its own because you
can free up the shot and the camera will tell you what it
thinks now suppose he is a bit of a dollar overcast day with a white Scion
is lotsa snow everywhere you now know that that is going to trick
the camera into making the exposure to dark so all
you have to do mister over expose it a bit set it so
you like me to says that’s a bit too bright and then we’ll probably be about
right because you can take test shots its
digital it doesn’t matter you can just take a shot going to be darkness a bit
raw it was a bit too bright there we go now we know what we want to do and it’s the same the other way around
if you want to shoot something at night you doing night photography the cameras gonna try and brought it up
because it’s a dark subject so you need to tell it to underexposed
you can do this manually at the same with over exposing by the
way to do it manually just as I did we could use the exposure
compensation but if you don’t want talking about take the exposure compensation link
below the film equally these things a brilliant for doing what
we’ve just done port rights close-ups macros products things like that you can
get a perfect exposure every time with one click setting on the camera where
you go brilliant if the light is in changing
the look pretty constant today because the day when the sun’s going out
you gotta keep re metering so they go two different ways to Mater
me the one is right neither one is wrong it’s just about knowing how to use them
