to use your camera's built in meter.

Buy a grey card, put it into your shooting area, use it to set your exposure manually, and your pictures will be fine.


Thanks BAK. I will try my gray card again. I did try this a while back and wasn't getting good results but not sure I was executing it properly.

With my white card, I shoot it then pick the card with my white balance dropper tool in RAW and apply it to all the images. With the gray card, am I supposed to do the same thing? Use same dropper tool?
