Re: Shooting "brighter" objects? Exposure settings?

Let me just suggest that, if you are going to get an incident light meter, you get one that also can be used for metering flash. It is not unreasonable to believe that you will end up wanting flash metering capability if you stay with the hobby (this is important when you start using off-camera flash or strobes), and lots of good light meters support essentially all modes -- incident/reflective and ambient/flash. There are lots of bells and whistles you can get with a light meter, but any meter that can do all of these modes should be adequate for your light metering needs. Sekonic and Shepherd/Polaris are two good brands that offer inexpensive light meters that should do. BTW, light meters are good things to buy used from a reputable dealer like KEH. You can save as much as 40% on a meter that is like new. FWIW
