Metering for ND Grad
Read a fair bit on this subject, but still had a question.
My understanding is that you would meter for the foreground without the filter. Then use this setting with the Grad.
You'd meter for the sky also to work out the difference of stops between foreground and sky to decide on which strength Grad to use.
However, is it not the same just sliding in your Grad and letting the meter work out exposure? (obviously hit and miss as to what strength Grad to use, but you would see visually the effect of what you were achieving through the histogram anyway).
Just needed confirmation of my understanding.
