Understanding how does a light meter work can make the difference between a poorly exposed picture and keeper. Unfortunately, a lot of people nowadays just rely on their cameras without taking the time to understand the basics. So they end up frustrated by the “poor results” of their camera.
So what is a light meter ?
In short, a light meter is a device that is sensitive to light who’s basic job is to balance an equation.
You typically give the light meter 2 out of 3 variables (ISO, shutter speed, aperture) and it will give the correct 3rd variable to get a well exposed picture of the given scene.
Not exactly a poll but I would like to hear your funny stories ! You know those weird things people tend to tell you when they see you carrying your gear ?
Stuff like “Oh, so that’s your camera !! no wonder you take such great pictures”, or even “Do you use this lens to spy on your neighbors or what ?”
well both of these happened to me, let’s hear yours !

Lars is a fellow photographer from Sweden with a fantastic gallery !
I’ve had the chance to find his pictures while looking for samples of the Canon EF 85mm 1.2 L and I was captivated by his portraits.
Lars was kind enough to allow me to publish 10 of his best pictures and, if you want to appreciate more of his work, I’ll invite you to take a look at his pbase gallery.
I’ve been a Canon user ever since my first DSLR and one of the things that always frustrated me is the uselessness of the LCD to evaluate the sharpness of your pictures.
In fact on the back LCD if you try to zoom while reviewing a picture it will quickly becomes pixelated and blurry. No need to tell you my deception when I was trying a friend’s Nikon and noticed the picture was perfect even after a 10x zoom and he could easily check if it was sharp or not.
