About This Class

This class is all about knowing what to watch out for when taking photos with natural light using a handheld meter. I'll be explaining what you'll need for this shoot, how all the tools work and what you'll need to watch out for.

The camera i'm using is a Leica M6 with a 35mm Summilux f/1.4, shooting Kodak Ultramax 400 Film. 

The light meter is a Sekonic L-308S Flashmate. 

The App I used for surveying where the sun will be is called "Sun Surveyor"
