Hello,

I have recently purchased a Sekonic L-398 light meter and I am having bit of trouble understanding how to take a reflective reading from it.

Does it work the same way as taking an incident (Lumisphere) reading but with the Lumigrid instead?
What is the biggest advantage of taking a reflective reading?
How does one have a better control over highlights and shadows in this instance?

Any help would be highly appreciated, thank you
