Hi, I use or am trying to use the Sekonic L358 with the spot meter attachment to get a base reading for an HDR shot but I am getting a little frustrated with it.If like today I take a reading for white clouds and get 1250 at F11 and the dark area gives me 60th at F11 that's about 4 & 1/3rd stops correct? So what would I have to set as a base reading to get my 7 shots -1,-2,-3,0,+1,+2,+3 to merge for HDR.Hope someone understands my question.
Hi, Bart, Can I just confirm this with you?When I take the cloud reading with the spot are you saying that I should increase that reading by 2 or 3 stops (as you would do with snow maybe) and use that as a base reading?
OK, so the idea is to spot meter a highlight. I understand how this makes sure you capture the top end. But what if -3ev below the clouds doesnt get all the shadow info? How does one know how low to go?
That said, you could make a fine image from a single RAW in that narrow of a situation.
