Light meter

I’ve had this light meter for a while, but never really used it.  I bought some Elinchrom D-Lites at the end of last year, so now I am trying to make more use of it.  It’s handy bit of kit.  It’s the cheapest of the range, and does what you expect.  I would be interested to know what the benefit of a more expensive unit is.

I do sometimes feel my camera’s LCD screen is showing the pictures as slightly overexposed though, but the histogram looks fine, so I just go with that.  Looking back, I think my pictures have generally been underexposed, so this has probably been me being too reliant on the LCD think everything as okay.  Anything to help you get things right in the camera has got to be a good thing.

It’s all about experimentation

My blog is basically about me experimenting with different techniques, plus photos that I take of various day to day activities.

Sometimes you stumble on something you hadn’t even thought about trying.

I’ve been using the lens profile correction tool in Lightroom.  What do you know… If you choose the wrong profile it can create some interesting effects.  This was the result of using a Sigma 8mm profile.  It should have been a 24-70mm lens.

Now, while this is quite entertaining, I’m pretty sure I’ll get bored of it quickly!
