Prague is one of my favorite cities and I had the pleasure of going there recently to photograph Yvonne and Mervyn's engagement session with Daniel Karczag Wedding Photography. I came along to exclusively shoot film. I purchased a light meter for the occasion and was a little nervous since it was my first time using an external light meter, but I am thrilled with the results. If you shoot film and are on the fence about purchasing a light meter, I 100% encourage you to go for it. In just one session, I found that using an external light meter gave me much more consistent exposure than using the in-camera meter ever has. I purchased the Sekonic L-398A. It's a classic meter which requires no batteries. But there are many different kinds of meters out there depending on what you prefer and what your needs are. I can't think of a better way to spend a day than exploring Prague while photographing a sweet couple. We started early to minimize the risk of throngs of tourists cluttering our photos. Our first stop was the astronomical clock and we were happy to find very few people out and about as early as we were.
Next stop: the Charles Bridge.
And can you believe this is actually the view from a Starbucks?
Thanks Daniel, Yvonne and Mervyn for letting me explore Prague with you!
