    I am getting ready for this year Melbourne Silver Mine Exhibition 15-26 Spet at Collingwood gallery in Melbourne. I am going to show three photographs made on film. I am tossing up between choosing this one as well or not! What do you think? Cheers,

      Great work, I agree that one of your long exposures should be there, all are beautiful, Could you send portraits as well?

      Thanks a lot Tom.
      Thanks Mohsen. I can put up whatever I want there however, trying to have some sort of consistency among them! I am thinking of submitting three long exposure shots in different categories like architecture, seascape and landscape :D

      I like it. This is a fine piece of work. The B+W tones are full and rich. Great composition as well. What are the other images that you are considering?

      Awesome! Was this an Incident light reading with you Sekonic?

    8. Aryan Aqajani 19 months ago | reply

      Thank you so much.
      No! With incident meter, you have to get close to your subject to get a reading! In this case, that triangle is the top of tower so had to use spot meter (reflective mode) of my light meter!

      Thanks Aryan. I really meant Ambient reading. I'm wondering if you can get away with Ambient light reading to get similar results.

      Thanks again

      if a light meter has a incident or reflective metering (spot) mode, then you can measure the ambient light (even flash light) in incident mode! However, when you cannot reach your object, then you use the spot meter of your light meter to get the exposure reading of your subject!

      In this image for instance, you can either use a handheld light meter or simply your built-in camera light meter in whatever mode you prefer (evaluative, center or spot. All of them are in reflective mode).

      Thanks again. The reason I ask is because I hate to play with camera metering when using the Big Lee Filter. Thanks again and enjoy your beautiful image captures.

      No drama! Meter with your camera before putting the Big Stopper on! With a digital camera, you have the luxury of checking your result instantly! Meter and check your result before doing long exposure with the filter! If your are happy with normal image exposure, then put the big stopper on and adjust your shutter speed accordingly!
