So for this type of photos an exposure meter does not offer anything that I cant get with a fill flash? I better spend some time to learn to use my flash...
Thank you for your input
P.s. What if it is really bright out and the sync speed of 1/200 may not be enough?
1)lightroom is pretty amazing but not ideal
2)Most higher end flash's have high speed synch, which will allow way over 1/200th. I find this quite useful for outdoors
3)You can use a polarizing and/or ND (neutral density) filter to make the scene appear darker to the camera, then enabling a slower (1/200) shutter speed to be correctly lit
