Sample text

The art to using the incident-light meter is knowing where to position it to take the reading. If you are metering for an outdoor portrait, the meter can be fooled by tipping it up to the sky—the same way a gray card will give you an underexposed reading if you tip it to the sky. Photographers often use incident meters to get a sense of the difference between the light and shadow tones in an image. For example, imagine you are photographing a subject lit by a window. If you meter on the side away from the window (the shadow side), you will get one reading.

Try turning the head toward the window to produce short lighting, then turn it away from the window to produce broad lighting. Again, do these setups with and without fill. Create an overhead diagram of your lighting setup for each shot. Part 3: Image Study. Collect tear sheets from magazines, images photographed from books, or photographs printed from the Internet that show some of the above natural lighting scenarios. Look for the catchlights in the eyes as your main clue, as well as the shadows on the nose, chin, and clothing.
