I've been reading about exposure meters and looking up affordable ones, which I could purchase. I'm def. going to get one that can take both reflected and incident reading.
My question however is what do people prefer when shooting outdoors the reflected or incident? Indoors I understand reading incident light is the norm. But outside where there's more levels of scene brightness (shadow areas, bright areas, etc.) would reflected be the best meter to use especially for wide shots where the sky is included.
If the light is flat I can see the incident meter outdoors giving you a proper reading for a very wide shot.
Also in a situation where the scene is dominated by darkness or light closing a stop for the dark (to prevent overexposure) and opening a stop for the light (to prevent under) should be good?
