    We have a homemade Dolly that Jeff, our video camera operator, made. We're going to make another video showing how to build one soon.

    Great site and very helpful, I have just a quick question. In the 6 light setup (with the 2 45degree boards and subtraction panels) do you measure the light from the camera position or where the model is going to be and point the light meter towards the lights? Just trying to get my head around it!

    Good question Simon. That setup uses several lighting ratios so you'd meter both to the lights and directly toward the camera. First meter from the models position to the lights to get the ratios correct, then meter towards the camera to get the final reading.

    Take a look at this video for a better explanation. http://www.vimeo.com/1707023

    Let me know if that helps, if not I'll try to do a better job explaining it for you.

    Hi, I think that's clear to me, I'm still a bit confused on the final reading issue as I would think that the lights coming from behind the model's position won't read on the meter so is that just knowing the effec the rear lights are having?

    Also, I've got a Sekonic L308B and despite reading the instructions many times get confused over when to use the lumiphere dome or the lumidisc. Is is the former for when you point to the camera and the latter when reading the indivual lights?

    Thanks again! Keep it up!
