I got a collection of my t shirts that had bright colours and that I thought would work best and did a meter reading of each of them and managed to successfully get the hang of doing a meter reading once I got the hang of doing it I really thought it’s a handy way to get that perfect image by using the meter reading option.
I didn’t really get the hang of meter reading at first but I kept on trying to do it and also I did some research on to it which really helped. To do a meter reading you need something bright that will stand out and also you need lots of lighting this way you would know if the meter reading has come out correct. I then got a few t shirts of main that I had and with each of them I did a meter reading and took the shoot and the result was great I did have any trouble doing it and managed to get a perfect result which I am happy with. For meter reading its good do use different colours using a dark colour and using a light colour within the same lighting you will get a different meter reading with this you have to be careful with. Because I had a bright yellow top and a red one when I did the meter read on the yellow one its came out just as I expected but when I was doing the red top I was getting a different reading so I had to change it the lighting was still the same as to when I took the shoot of the yellow top. This was very interesting and something new that I didn’t really know about which I found really interesting.
I may go out and do extra shoots on this as now I have the hang of doing it i will be experimenting it outdoor with all the different colours. Because I have the knowledge of meter reading I know if someone was to send me out to a job to do a task I would come back with a successful results. And i will be going out and taking shoots of different objects.
