Hi all

How does one get exposure right? Are there any tools other than the camera to do this? Seen lots of "making ofs" where some guy goes up to the actress with a small device, points it at her cheek, then turns and walks off.

I have a DSLR camera that has metering options in camera, and thats all good if your gonna shoot auto. But if your shooting manual what can you use?

Those nifty little things are called "lightmeters" or sometimes "exposure meters" (in english). On this board you'll find double the amount of information about them than you'll ever need since it's kind of a favourite topic. just try a search with the terms i suggested to you :P

About getting the "right" exposure? Well...that's another story :rolleyes:
