I was wondering if any of you uses a light meter, I know some fashion photographers use it but don't know if its any good for car shots

maybe so but I had the oportunity to shoot some models with info from a lightmeter and I liked the spot on exposure, my eye isn't so trained to get it perfect every time

Light meters can be helpful at times but it's not like the film days where you really "needed" one to get it done right. I can't remember the last time I found myself thinking "damn, if only I had an external light meter right now..." yadiddamean?

A colour temp meter is way more usefull than a lightmeter.

I have colour temp, spot and light meters and I don't use any of them, when shooting digital. Of course film is another story.

ok thx all for the info

I wasn't sure if it was a good idea to buy one of those, now I think it would be the wrong thing to spend my money on
digital really makes it easier smile.gif
