Hello, my name is Teanna Woods. And today, we'll be talking about using and choosing your photo light meter. First, let's talk about using your light meter. You want to make sure that there's an ISO button located on your meter, so you want to adjust that. You also want to make sure that F stop button is adjusted correctly. And then, in your, you want to make sure that the incident and reflective little dome is placed in the right spot. So, let's talk about choosing your correct light meter. Light meters can be very simple or a little complex. So, you definitely want to make sure you're choosing the right one. You can go ahead and make sure that there's an ISO button, that's very important. There's an F stop on your screen, there's a shutter and there's an incident and a reflective mode. And that is the little white dome. So, you want to make sure that you can switch between both of those modes, that's very key. So, now I'm going to show you the differences between these two light meters. This light meter has an ISO button, has a multi-mode button and has an incident and reflective reading mode.

So, you'll be able to get the same results. The other one is just a little more technical and just has something additional for a little more of an advanced shooter. So, now you know the differences and you know how to use and choose your photo light meter. thank you for watching.
