As a present1 to myself I am renting a Mamiya RB67 kit for 2 weeks. One of the things I want to try is to take some sunsets using a split ND filter.
The kit doesn't come with a metered viewfinder, but I do have a Sekonic hand-held meter (as well as my Nikon dig and film cameras). So what is the best technique for metering such a scene?
Do I simply use the spot meter to meter two different parts of the sky and landscape and try to combine them into one Frankenstein like exposure?
Or should I slap the ND filter on my digital cam and see what it says as an overall exposure for the entire scene?
Or something that I haven't thought about?
I am planning on experimenting using my dig cam before I commit to film, but I don't even know where to start as a best practice.
FWIW I will be shooting Ektar 100
