Light meters are one of essential, yet often forgotten tools of any photographers’ kit bag. Using a light meter often makes the difference between amateur and professional photographers – between getting the shot right the first time or eventually getting it through trial and error.
For studio photography – product shots, portraits, fashion etc – light meters are essential as they guide photographers to which settings their cameras and studio lights should be at.
There’s a tendency to rely on digital cameras’ in-built light meters, and while they are far more accurate than they used to be, all photographers can still benefit from the increased accuracy and reliability of using a dedicated light meter – and they are certainly essential pieces of equipment for photography studios.
Whether checking ambient light or flash light, in a studio or outdoor in natural light, whether using incident or reflected metering, there is a wide selection of light meters available at Park Cameras for photographers of any experience level.
