I live on the emerald coast, between Panama City Beach and Destin, Florida. As a hobbyist photographer, I went out to shoot two young ladies today against a 1 o'clock sun sky with a canon 6d, a canon 430ex II, Yongnuo YN568EX, beauty dish, reflectors, umbrellas and soon on. Needless to say, I didn't have enough power. Just learning, it took me a good 30 minutes to figure it all out. In this environment would a light meter had help me out? I'm learning, and I'm not sure how well a bright day, speed lites and a light meter would work together. The meter I'm wondering about is the Sekonic L-358 Flash Master Light Meter.
