I got a problem on the light meter I am using (gossen, don't know which model).
It boils down to, I go to get readings in darker areas, and I am using/testing lenses at F1,4 and F2,0 and it will not give readings under 1.0. So when I want to figure out if something is 3-5 stops under and if it will be underexposed but still there or crushed completely, I have to increase the ISO a couple of stops to figure out how much darker an area is.
If I would be using lets say F8 as my working F-stop, I could easily get readings that F5,6 is one under, F4 would be two under, F2,8 would be three under, etc. Easy I can see if things gets crushed or not. But as I said, when on 1.4, I only have one stop that the meter will tell me. So is this normal for all meters, are there better methods for me to use?
