Understanding the light ratios (the difference in value of light two different light sources) of your lighting setup can make setting up a photo easy. You'll learn about key lights, fill lights, kickers, backlight and background light.It also makes it simple to recreate the same light over and over again. You'll even learn what kind of clothes to wear while metering the light! Mark uses a Sekonic L-358, available at Adorama, in this exclusive Adarama TV episode to determine the lighting ratio. The L-357 has a built-in function to do this, so you don't have to do math in your head!
