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.

The amateur radio man

I was out walking over the Staffordshire Moorlands, and as I arrived at a trig point (the highest part of that area of land), I found Mick, a very nice man with a passion for amateur radio.  He was telling me he could communicate with people in Australia and New Zealand from up there.  Currently he was tuned into Japan.  What a nice life.. out in the hills on a sunny day communicating with people in far flung places (without using a computer!).
