Question for all Rovelighters: Do you use a manual lightmeter when shooting above sync speed, and if so how do you?
I can only set my Sekonic 478 meter to 1/1000 sec in wireless flash mode. Can, or do you work around this with your meter, or do you set your ambient, and chimp your way to exposing your subject properly?
Am I looking at this right?
Let's say my ambient settings are 1/4000, F2.8 and ISO 100. I want my ambient to be 1 stop underexposed. I set my camera's manual settings one stop underexposed, so 1/8000, f2.8, iso 100. If I want to properly expose my subject one stop higher, could I set my meter in flash mode to 1/1000, ISO 100, then just aim for two stops higher than ambient (2.8, 4.0, 5.6...) so meter my flash to 5.6? Or perhaps the meter doesn't see the strobes light properly above camera sync speed?
