I am just getting serious about learning studio lighting, but have been accumulating equipment for the past couple of years. I shoot with a D700 and now have an SU-800, 2 SB-800s and 1 SB-910. I have been using this equipment in a small studio setting and metering lights by trial and error so I thought it was time to buy a light meter. I now have a Sekonic L358. light meter - Does anyone know how to take an incident meter reading of the subject? Nikon won't help me because I am using, a "third party product". Sekonic tells me I need the Pocket Wizards. And, of course, Pocket Wizard tells me the same thing.
The only thing I can come up with at this point is to use a sync cord, but then I have to meter each light separately. (As someone just learning,is that perhaps the best way?)
Does anyone who uses a hand-held meter and Speedlights have any suggestions for me?
Thank you in advance for your help!!
