    Why Every Photographer Should Own a Light Meter
    "Starting out, I would just shoot and tweak power settings and my aperture and the light placement until I got what I wanted. As an amateur, it worked. But once I decided that photography was a career for me and as I began picking up client work, this method became quite ineffective, forcing me to get the one tool I never realized I needed." -Spencer Lookabaugh from Fstoppers
