Here are a set of photos from this weekend’s photoshoots; the first time I used a light meter as the primary source of measuring the lighting. As I mentioned in my previous post, in the past I relied on “chimping”, taking shot after shot and tweaking things based off the LCD on the back of the camera until I got it right. I still found I was chimping a little bit, but that had more to do with my relative lack of experience with the light meter, and it’s something I expect will level out with practice. Nevertheless, I learned a ton from these shoots and can feel that skill level growing exponentially. One of the surprising things I noticed was the distinct lack of having to photoshop for exposure; I’m used to tweaking the levels/curves and bringing up the fill a little.
