Reading AC, sometimes in the production shots they show the dp metering a scene. Why is it that at times their cupping their hand over meter? Is it so they can read individual lights?
Look up the manual online for the meter you have and read it. When I bought my minolta spot meter, I read the manual and it worked fine.

Or blocking backlight, regardless the Sun or an lighting instrument,
not to hit the dome and interfere with your metering.
The old school analog Sekonic L-398M has
a slide slot on top of the head, behind the dome,
and the manual says:
"When no slide is inserted, strong light
directly striking the slide slot may enter
through the slot. Although this does not
seriously affect exposure, if more accurate
exposure is required, cover slot with hand"
