I am aspiring DP and want to train my eyes better.  I'm looking into a light meter, and i know people know a days say they aren't need but I don't think is true.  I would like to have one that want kill my pockets but also not so cheap that it will fall apart in my hands.

 

Next part of the topic is, when studying movies or when I'm outdoors what are a few things I should take and notice.  Ex: how lights hits the trees or pavement etc.

 

Thank You

Well for myself, when I used to ride the subway in Philadelphia, I would notice as it moved-- especially when it was moving slowly-- how the lights moved across people's faces and changed the way they looked. I also enjoy looking at people in other areas-- all areas. How does the light look on someone at a diner, in a waiting room ect. From all that I then went into, as I started to know what i'm doing a bit, looking at the same situations and thinking about how to augment such lighting to make it better or worse ect..
