Never get caught without Light meter? Stuck on an expedition important photographic no way to determine your exposure settings? Well I have, and it worked out ok, thanks to the Sunny 16 Rule and careful consideration of years of experience. Here’s the story about this event and how it works.
I camped the first night and went shooting only at noon. In the early afternoon photo session I Light meter I lost. It fell out of my coat pocket while I was traveling. If you can see a million, trillion rocks strewn across the desert and where I had been on a bike, you will understand that it is not worth looking meter. Five days photographing in front of me and there was no way to get accurate light readings.

Being winter, the low angle of the sun throughout the day so I take pictures for most of the time except for a while around noon when I returned to my camp to feed. Of course, when I use Light meter added two stops. When using ISO 400 black and white film I made a new set of numbers added three stops for a red filter. When I got home and processed the film in black and white and in cores it gets the color negatives and CD back from the lab.
