The f16 Rule
How meters KNOW and the f16 rule
How meters determine exposures may be a bit of a mystery, but it is all easily understood if just a bit of time is taken.  Understanding some basics can help you determine if your meter is reading correctly, or if an adjustment needs to be made.  This article will help you to understand how meters know what to read, and also how to check the calbration of your meter against a standard.
Because all light meters are calibrated to a certain standard, with very little equipment, you can test your meter to make sure it is calibrated properly.
The first thing to know is that meters are calibrated to something called 18% grey.  The theory behind this approach is the concept that if you took all the colours in a normal scene and mixed them all together, you would get a colour that is exactly 18% grey.  While this may appear to be silly, the reality is that in most situations it works.  Now I am sure that all of

Taking the Fun Out of Photography
(And Putting it Back In)
When most photographers first pick up a camera, they do not usually understand the term Depth of Field (DOF), let alone know what it does.   And even as people progress in the art, they tend not to take the time necessary to learn the finer details, preferring rather to shoot by the gut, rather than calculation.  As a result, many shots can be ruined by too little or too much DOF, simply because the photographer did not take the time to understand their equipment and how DOF works.   Now it is not necessary to calculate every exposure, but experience with doing so on a few, will give you an invaluable sense of what to do in the field.  In the case of this article, I knew by experience what f-stop to use, and then I proved it later by calculation, for this entry.
Mostly, what I find that photographers do, is to take a guess at the DOF that they think is required.  In some cases, the camera has a

Personal Quote: Take one step at a time and leap at the right moment.
Some time ago, Curlyjorj, a colleague of mine from university, talented artist and engineer, asked me if he could use some of my photos as models for paintings or drawings. I said yes and yesterday he showed me the result. To say the least, I was really impressed. Have a look:
