Re: Question about incident light meter

I think he actually mean it. There  was a question from audience later in the workshop ask Blair to confirm he was referring to incident metering not reflective and he confirmed that. This made me wonder my understanding of incident metering is fundamentally wrong, hence the question here.

You are correct that an incident light meter's accuracy is not affected by the lightness or darkness of the image, unlike refelective meters. But my guess is that he was intending to explain the limits of reflective metering and simply misspoke.
