An Expensive Light Meter

An Expensive Light Meter

In the first few week so shooting my Hasselblad I was really struggling to trust what my light meter was saying.  I was mostly shooting wide open.  On my light meter I would set my film speed and check what shutter speed matched my 2.8 aperture setting on my lens.    I was carrying my Monochrom with me and using that as a backup to check to make sure I had the right exposure.    Basically I would take a shot with the settings from the light meter to makes sure the exposure was correct.   It makes for an expensive light meter. It turned out I got some pretty cool shots along the way...

Today's configuration:  Leica M-Monochrom with a Summicron 50mm f/2.0

We walk around the areas around the temples in Asakusa.  I haven't explored these areas before.  It was very interesting.   I love finding new areas to explore.
