For anyone interested can I draw your attention to a programme called ‘My Father and Me’ now on BBC iPlayer

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000thyl


Graham recently drew my attention to this programme. 

It’s about the life and work of Maurice Broomfield the acclaimed industrial photographer.

Some of his images give a good insight as why accurate incident light reading was so necessary for his work (with the equipment he used) back in the day. 


Yes, modern cameras with spot metering could achieve the same result...but establishing the right metering point and an understanding of tonal range are still needed in difficult lighting.
