As a working photographer, the center of the universe is your camera bag and its contents. Your cameras and lenses are the tools of your trade.

Light meters work by measuring the ambient or reflected light levels within the area you plan on photographing. Using medium gray, or 18% gray as a reference point, the meter takes this information and converts it to a combination of shutter speeds and lens-aperture openings.

Electronic Flash - Electronic flash is daylight balanced (5500K, or Kelvin) and can be used for almost any studio application. When shooting with electronic flash, the actual exposure is made by the discharge of a powerful micro-burst of light, which is generated by the power pack (or generator) and output through the flash lamp head.
