I recently acquired a Sekonic flashmate L-308S. Im not unfamiliar with light meters and how they work but I feel a little uncertainly about the instructions and use of this light meter. These days I am most commonly using the meter to measure the reflected light, especially in situations where I cannot get close to the subject so I am usually pointing the meter towards the subject from the camera position. The manual indicates that, if you measure from the camera position, the entire object is measured in average. However, the manual (to me) is not clear on whether or not the Lumisphere should be used for this type of application. (as opposed to the Lumidisc. It does indicate that the Lumisphere is appropriate for INCIDENT light measurement. But, as I am usually not able to get close to my subjects, I usually cannot use the meter in this fashion. The manual appears to indicated that the Lumidisc is used to meaure manuscripts, painting or other flat copy, or otherwise for measuring light contrast. So, this leaves the Lumisphere or the naked lens for a reflected light measurement. My question is, is it correct to use the lumiSPHERE for both incident and reflective light measurements (using this meter)? I realize that I have to use my brain as well as the meter in evaluating light and setting the camera to give me the type of exposure I want.
