Framing The World Through My Photographs
I have used light metres before, but I have never had them explained in a way that I understood, therefore in college I became a bit lazy and never used them, I always used to guess, which probably took me longer to get the right lighting than if I had used the light metre.
Features on a light metre
Power button – Speaks for itself, used to turn the device on.
Infera Cone – this is the white dome at the top of the light metre, underneath there is a sensor which records the light. The dome can slide across so that the light can directly hit the sensor, but generally you would have the dome over the sensor.
Mode – used to select which mode will be most suitable for the lighting conditions.

Whilst doing some research on light metres, I came across a video on youtube, which I found useful because there wasn’t too many technical words used so it was simple to follow.
