Exposure Meter Methods (Week 2 Handouts) by John Budde

INCIDENT EXPOSURE METHOD

1. Set ISO for appropriate film stock
2. Insert appropriate calculating slide in slot behind photosphere
3. Place meter in same light as subject and aim photosphere toward lens
4. Note luminance reading on foot-candle read-out scale
5. Match scale reading with appropriate slide indicator on calculator
6. All resultant alignments of f-stops and shutter speeds on calculator will now yield identical amounts of exposure
7. For normal filming (180 degree shutter at 24fps) locate the f: # directly aligned with 1/48 second and set lens iris accordingly

REFLECTED EXPOSURE METHODS

WIDE ANGLE METHOD

Replace step 3 above with the following technique:
With the reflected grid attached over photocell, aim the meter at the subject and take reading

SPOT METER METHODS

NOTE: For the three methods below, start with these settings:

1. Set ISO for appropriate film stock
2. Read the area of interest with the center spot in the meter viewfinder
3. Note luminance reading (meter scale numbers) within n viewfinder
4. Match meter scale number from viewfinder to same on calculator
5. All resultant alignments of f-stops and shutter speeds on calculator Will now yield identical amounts of exposure equal to 18% gray
6. For normal filming (180 degree shutter at 24fps) locate the f: # directly aligned with 1/48 second and set lens iris accordingly

SINGLE POINT METHOD:
Aim the spot in the viewfinder at an 18% gray card placed in the same light as subject. Make exposure for this value.

TWO POINT METHOD:
Aim the spot in the viewfinder at the second brightest and next to darkest values within the scene. Place the exposure at the mid-point between these two levels.

MULTI-POINT METHOD:
Aim the spot in the viewfinder at various, areas within the scene. Compare meter scale numbers and locate a value which you would like to realize as 18%) ray. Make exposure for this value.
