I did learn something new today. The Sekonic L-408 Multimaster can meter
reflected light flash using the spot meter function.
Tony was demonstrating how to control the color of light on a background, but
the function only worked if you could first set the background light so it was
three stops down from the main light & it wouldn't work with an incident reading
(don't know why; that's what he was saying).
He was saying that only a few select meters are capable of taking reflected
readings from flash; mainly one VERY EXPENSIVE Sekonic meter.
... and as it turns out the L-408 Multimaster.

Oops...that should have been L- 308S not 3085

I'm with Larry. When I had a working studio I used White Lightnings. Now I
have a set of Alien Bees for the occasions when I need studio lighting.
They're relatively inexpensive, provide consistent light output and are
adjustable over seven stops.
Paired with an incident light meter they're all you need with today's DSLRs.
I have a Shepherd Polaris meter - cheap but works well - though it's not
available new anymore. The Sekonic L-3085-U looks so surprisingly like the
Polaris that I wonder if Sekonic bought out Polaris. It measures both
incident and reflected light for strobe and ambient light.

I'm taking a class on lighting this week with Tony Corbell. He's using
Profoto Air TTL and the Profoto strobes (A1, B1, B1X & D1). Great if you're a
Nikon or Canon shooter.
But what options are there if you're a Pentax shooter like me?
