Hi,

Try metering the net with a spotmeter. I have used a black Dior 10 denier net and allowed 2/3 stop for them.

If its a branded net filter check the technical information for the filter factor.If you are using any of black hair nets or stockings etc., follow Stephens advise

A trick that I always use is to take a reading with the net and then a reading without the net and just see where to compensate at.
Hope this helps
