Controlling Light is an essential skill for photographers, videographers and digital filmmakers. Sekonic makes tools such as light meters, colour meters and illuminometers to help you measure and control light for the perfect exposure. Save time and money by getting it right in-camera instead of in post-production.
Shoot better; edit less.
Light is powerful. It guides the viewer, creates mood, and adds dimension, depth, and texture. If you want to create a signature style that elevates your photography to the next level, the mastery of off-camera lighting should be your next goal.
Subjects – clients – are not impressed with a 'shoot, view, and adjust photo style'. Lighting ratios, ambient balance, and final exposure must be set confidently. Knowledge and use of the tools of photography assure that the outcome is the intended one.
Unlike in-camera metering, handheld, incident light meters don’t require multi-patterned readings, complex exposure
control systems, or +/- exposure correction when they fail.
They are, in fact, the simplest and most direct way to determine exposure. And because incident meters measure the light that
falls on your subject, they provide camera settings that render the image exactly the way it appears. Blacks are black. Greys are grey. Whites are white.
